The Future of Local Government

Request a call back

From managing shrinking budgets and increasing citizen expectations to nurturing community engagement and achieving net zero, local government is at the sharp end of many challenges.

Working with Solace, we’re setting out to discover what our future local government might look like in 2032 and how we can prepare for this.

Working together on this innovation mission, we’ll implement new ideas to develop the technology tools you need to succeed.

A toolkit for leaders

Through discussions with current and aspiring leaders, we’ve uncovered what you should be doing now, next, and later to be future-ready.

Collaborating with Solace, we've created an inspiring guide that identifies some of the key challenges facing local government, and looks at how leaders are tackling them. It includes a "maturity model" designed to help senior leaders understand where they are on the innovation spectrum.
