Design in the public sector

Delivered in a partnership between the LGA and the Design Council, the Design in Public Sector programme equips councils with design skills and techniques to apply to their service challenges.


Councils have used this programme to help them tackle some of the most pressing issues currently faced by public services.

This year’s Design in the Public Sector programme, in partnership with the Design Council, is focused on applying design process and methods to tackle public health challenges with a focus on prevention. We are looking for councils in the South of England working in public services who are passionate about transforming the health of the nation. See the benefits of applying design techniques to challenges and how you can apply for the programme.
