Welcome to the UK Open Government Forum!

The UK Open Government Forum helps the open government movement in the UK to connect and collaborate.

The forum was created by the UK Open Government Network (OGN) - a coalition of organisations and individuals committed to making government work better for people through transparency, participation and accountability.

If you’re interested in opening up government budgets, contracts, datasets, decision making, information, policymaking or public services, we invite you to join.
