Digital communities of practice

Our communities of practice bring together our government colleagues to collaborate, showcase work, solve problems and explore best practice.

The communities are open to anyone in local, state, territory and federal government to join.

We continue to expand and update our guidance to help teams across government understand and meet the Digital Service Standard.
