What we do at GDS

We pride ourselves on building simple and accessible digital services that work for absolutely everyone in society.

If you’ve ever visited GOV.UK, or received a Covid vaccination text message on your phone, or applied for a passport online, you will have used some of our services. 


GOV.UK is the online home of government information and services. It is an integral part of our national infrastructure, essential to living, studying and working in the UK. We want to make it quicker and easier for users to access what they need.

GOV.UK One Login

GOV.UK One Login is a new universal login that’s already making public services easier to access online for more than 1.5 million people. The system allows users to have just one account, one username, one password and one identity check to use Government services.

Platforms & Services

Platforms, products and tools designed to create great public services that are accessible, inclusive and easy to use. Examples include building ways for government to take payments, create forms or send text messages and emails.
