Scotgovcamp would not happen without the support of our sponsors. This year we’re very lucky (again!) to be supported by the University of Edinburgh which is allowing us to use their wonderful Informatics Forum.
And these guys have been very generous with their cash!
[There’s still room on this page, so get in touch if you’re interested in contributing to the success of this event (no amount too small!).]
FutureGov works with local authorities to make better, cheaper public services through the use of elegantly designed technology. Using their expertise in design, technology and change management to work closely with service users and practitioners to understand their needs and make solutions that solve their biggest challenges.
Many of the 25-strong team started their careers in local government, and in five years Futuregov has worked with a range of councils including unitaries, districts and counties, across the whole of the UK.
Futuregov products include Patchwork, a web tool that connects front line workers around their clients. Currently being used in eight local authority areas in the UK and Australia, Patchwork has a focus on child protection but can be used in any front line multi-agency environment.
