Last year, the Open Public Services White Paper set out a key commitment for the future of government engagement and communication with the public to be increasingly digital by default.

With the recent release of an interim progress report on the digitalisation of public services and the publication of the Open Data White Paper, this timely symposium provides an invaluable opportunity to:
• Discuss how social media can play a positive role in council strategy to improve and support local government efficiency
• Examine the latest developments in the Government’s Digital Service (GDS) strategy in the context of enabling more open and transparent public services
• Assess the current use of digital social networking tools across local government, healthcare, the third sector, the police and other areas
