About us

We build platforms, products and services that help create a simple, joined-up and personalised experience of government to everyone.

We do this through GOV.UK, Digital Identity and Government as a Platform to help people interact with government, and support government to operate more effectively and efficiently.



We also maintain and improve these cross-government platforms and tools:


Our priority is to help government offer user-focused services by supporting cross-government digital transformation. To do this we will:

  • provide vital information and services for users through GOV.UK
  • support government’s response to COVID-19 by providing digital leadership and tools to enable services to be rapidly built and deployed
  • maintain, iterate and improve the services and tools we provide to the rest of government
  • increase the use of shared platforms and components across government
  • support departments by strengthening their digital capability and providing direct support for major digital projects
  • enhance government’s digital capability through the GDS Academy
