About Government Digital Service

The Government Digital Service (GDS) is helping to redefine how a modern government should serve its citizens. Our work is cutting-edge and award-winning. It is improving the lives of millions of people.

We build and run world-class public services for the digital age. We work in small, agile teams of developers, designers and content specialists. Users always come first and everything we do should meet their needs.

The Government Digital Service (GDS) is part of the Cabinet Office. Our job is digital transformation of government.

We're a centre of excellence in digital, technology and data, collaborating with departments to help them with their own transformation. We work with them to build platforms, standards, and digital services.

We always start with user needs. We are agile. We work to a set of Design Principles that guide us in everything we do.

We believe in working openly, because making things open makes them better.

We run GOV.UK, the best place to find government services and information. It began as an alpha, built in just 10 weeks, and has grown to become part of our national digital infrastructure. It's always being improved in response to user research and user feedback.
