At the Government Digital Service (GDS), our mission is to build a simple, joined-up and personalised experience of government for everyone. Using our unique position at the centre of government, we develop services that work for the user, however complex the underlying systems may be. We believe that ensuring things work for end users is the only way to realise the efficiencies that come with digital transformation.
Our focus is on delivering five missions in the following areas:
GOV.UK as the single and trusted online destination for government information and services
Joined-up services that solve whole problems and span multiple departments
A simple digital identity solution that works for everyone
Common tools and expert services
Joined-up data across departments
