This year LocalGovCamp Fringe Friday featured a workshop format, where experts from leading councils, Government Digital Service, Department for Work and Pensions, Ministry of Justice, Public Service Transformation Academy, innovation labs and more including private sector organisations ran workshops on all aspects of the Local Government Service Standard.

Sessions armed attendees with practical skills to realise each point in the Standard, from designing services around users, making the most of the agile toolkit in Local, to doing performance monitoring well and using open standards and platform components.
