Learn more about the new GOV.UK Verify service

In October 2016 GDS partnered with 19 local authorities on two collaborative pilots to transform residential parking permit and older people’s concessionary bus pass services using GOV.UK Verify.


As the pilots are now nearing the end of Discovery phase, the time has come to share what we’ve done, get feedback from the sector and update on what’s yet to come.

Please register to come to our London event on Thursday 2 March 2017, between 12:30 – 17:00 at Code Node, 10 South Place, London, EC2M 7BT. You can register your place here:

This is the second of two showcase events (the other will take place in Newcastle) and in half a day it aims to:

  • provide a brief history of #VerifyLocal and approach taken to offering GOV.UK Verify to local authorities across the country

  • review our first pilot discovery findings

  • present the Discovery user research findings, service patterns and service designs, technical architecture and business cases

    It is also a great opportunity to hear from council pilot participants themselves about their experience so far, hear about GDS' plans to offer other platform services to local authorities and, generally, have a chat with likeminded people about service transformation and identity assurance in local government!

    Who should come:

  • LA heads of service, digital, web, IT, business development / transformation staff or councillors

  • representative bodies and public sector organisations influential in local service transformation

  • business development staff at companies currently delivering digital services to local authorities

    Book your place

    Spaces are limited and only registered attendees will be allowed entry, so please register your attendance as soon as possible to secure a place.

    Please use the categories provided for registration to indicate the organisation you represent. You can also request a livestream ticket, and we'll send you details of the livestream closer to the day.
