We do digital, design and social innovation for government.
Introduction
FutureGov works with local authorities to make better public services through the use of elegantly designed technology. 

We use our expertise in design, technology and change management to work closely with service users and practitioners. We understand their needs and make solutions that solve their biggest challenges.

Many of our 25-strong team started their careers in local government, and in our five years we have worked with a range of councils including unitaries, districts and counties, across the whole of the UK.

Our 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.

Other products include:
  • Casserole Club: Home-cooked food made by neighbours for neighbours
  • Doc Ready: Making the most of young people’s mental health consultations
  • Simpl Challenges: Connects local public services and organisations with innovators and ideas
