Our work: Salford City
Salford City has a bold ambition to be a Digital City using digital transformation to ensure our services are a great experience for everyone. Set within the context of reducing resources and increasing growth in the city, the Salford city council set themselves the objective of doing things ‘quicker, easier and better,’ and develop radical new ways of working with partners to make best use of the city’s collective resources. As part of the council’s landmark digital inclusion programme, Digital You, they teamed up with Barclays to create local authority Digital Eagles – over 400 volunteer council employees from frontline workers in Waste & Recycling and Customer Services, to Dog Wardens and Youth Workers – all blazing the trail to help their colleagues and residents become comfortable and confident online.
