The All-Party Parliamentary Design and Innovation Group would like to invite you to an exclusive roundtable discussion with Matt Hancock, the Minister for the Cabinet Office, and the Government Digital Service.

GDS was established in 2011 with a mandate to make government digital by default. It aims to make digital services and information simpler, clearer and faster and to put users’ needs before the needs of government.

Its first major project was the development of the award-winning GOV.UK – the single website for government services – which launched in 2012.

With digital capability growing across government, GDS has a new focus: to help departments and agencies across government quickly design, build and deliver new services that are fully focused on their users.

Senior figures from GDS will talk about the organisation’s new aims and ambitions, reveal its working processes and explain how design can transform the relationship between citizen and state.

If you would like to attend this roundtable discussion, please RSVP at the following link.
