LocalGov Digital Midlands Peer Group

Who it’s for

The Midlands Peer Group, co-chaired by Coventry City and Leicestershire County Councils, is for all Council colleagues and colleagues in partner organisations involved in creating and delivering digital services throughout the region.

Established to cover both East and West Midlands based authorities, you’ll find representation from:

  • Staffordshire

  • Coventry

  • Warwickshire

  • Worcestershire

  • Herefordshire

  • Shropshire

  • Birmingham

  • Wolverhampton

  • Solihull

  • Stoke-on-Trent

  • Telford

  • Derbyshire

  • Leicestershire

  • Lincolnshire

  • Northamptonshire

  • Nottinghamshire

What we do

Our aim  is to build a network of  digital practitioners in the Midlands, providing the opportunity to explore how we can work together as neighbours to use our collective skills and experiences to improve services across the region.

The first peer group meeting took place in September 2016 and focussed on:

  • what the LocalGovDigital Service Standard might mean in helping to create and deliver great digital services

  • what role the peer group could play in this; touching on how it could operate in the future.

How to get involved

The Peer Group aims to meet quarterly and meetings take the form of a half-day session filled with discussions, workshops and guest speakers. You can book your place on the next planned event when organised via our Eventbrite pages.

Prior to each session, the agenda will be co-created and published for comment to make sure we cover things that will add value to your work.
