Digital Devolution: Powering Public Services Reform

Local Gov. Website banner4

Devolution is at the heart of the Government’s agenda and has the potential to be a disruptive force for revolutionising the way we deliver local services. We will have a new Chief Digital Officer for London soon to be appointed and by next year a number of new Mayors elected, this event will explore how devolution can be a catalyst for change and the enabling role tech can play in delivering smarter devolution.
