UKGovcamp brings together lots of folk interested in how the UK Public Sector does digital, every January since 2008.
Thanks to many lovely sponsors, we’re able to cover the costs of UKGovcamp and have some spare to help support further events to keep the energy flowing all year round.
UKGovcamp Grants is a small grants scheme to help get these events off the ground, with small contributions towards catering and logistics costs.
UKGovcamp is the free, annual 'unconference' for people interested in how the public sector does digital stuff.
We put some of the left-over sponsorship money into a grants pot each year, and use it to help other similar events get off the ground.
