Brief Description

Directgov is the government website for public services in the UK. Launched in 2004, the site now receives millions of visits a month from members of the public wanting access to information from low cost home ownership schemes and finding their local school, to renewing their car tax online. In January 2008, the number of visits rose to over 7million.
By 2011, all public facing services on central government websites should be available on the Directgov website; 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. A ¿web convergence¿ programme is currently under way to migrate information and services from the large number of existing government websites onto Directgov, so that people will be able to find what they need easily, all in one place. Directgov is also available through digital TV's interactive services on Freeview, Virgin Media and Sky, as well as web-enabled mobile phone networks.
Editors produce and publish high quality content to the Directgov website, following defined standards and in line with the propositional framework. The Directgov proposition is designed to give citizens easy to understand, relevant material that will help them deal with government.
