Over the past 4 years, FutureGov has worked with over 50 clients in the digital innovation space, drawing on our design, technology and change skills to help identify challenges and work with users to define and deliver solutions. We have worked across the UK with Districts, Unitaries and Counties from Surrey to Staffordshire, Brighton to Camden.
FutureGov has changed over time, beginning life advising councils, in particular communications teams, on how to use social media. As time has gone by we have become much more than a social media consultancy, going back to our roots in technology-led public service change.
Passionate about innovation in public services, we started to advise more and more on the use of web technology for social innovation and change. We began to focus in more detail on the design process as well as building our own technology and working with partners to implement tools on the ground. In parallel our online presence and open approach to communication has grown our reputation as thought leaders and we have been privileged enough to be able to see our work helping to shape policy and practice in government.
Our growth has been down to our openness to new opportunities and willingness to work with others. We maintain our curiosity and youthful delight in the new and innovative, and we share that with everyone we work with. It’s infectious and we’re excited when people want to join us, whether as a colleague, a partner, a client or a critical friend. We remain relentlessly constructive - where we see a system failing or a social problem, we work tirelessly to understand the issues and find solutions. Crucially we do this with people, not to them.
