A logo saying Public Policy Design: Design Leaders

Champion public sector design in our senior peer network

The Policy Design Community provides a network for people who make public policy and services in innovative design-centred ways. It is open to anyone who works for a government organisation in the UK.

Design Leaders is a working group of the community. It provides a peer-to-peer network for senior civil servants and officials to champion public sector design.

The group aims to...

  • provide a safe space for understanding and experimentation with design-centred ways of leading public policy and service making
  • set out the value proposition for public sector design
  • advocate for public sector design
  • identify and exploit leverage points for public sector design
  • create conditions for success in which public sector design thrives.

You can join the Design Leaders group by emailing from your government email address.
