I’m delighted to announce the launch of the newly designed Government Communication Service (GCS) website today, 1 June 2020.

It is the centre of the best professional practice in public service communication. We’ve listened to what you want from the website and have created a new easy to navigate, accessible digital product.

Going forward

The new web strategy is to work more closely with heads of disciplines to own their topics: to commit to content review, to create blog posts, news stories and case studies; to become trainers for courses; and deliver webinars.

We will continue to update our content with helpful information, cutting-edge campaigns and communications announcements. You can also sign up for our GCS Monthly newsletter.

We value your feedback highly on this new site – it is your site, made with you in mind. So if you have any questions, suggestions, feedback or comments, please contact the Professional Development team at
