Discover how Wigan Council empowered its residents with digital strategy

How did Wigan Council's digital strategy win it Digital Council of the Year at this year's Local Government Chronicle Awards? Find out in an exclusive webinar.

Earlier this year, Wigan Council won Digital Council of the Year at the Local Government Chronicle Awards for executing a digital strategy to make life easier for its residents.

Positioning itself as a digital leader in local government, Wigan council worked in partnership with Agilisys in implementing the My Account Digital platform, an online tool that makes it easier to contact the council, pay bills and report environmental problems. Today, more than 40,000 people have signed up to My Account.

The digital platform was implemented as part of The Deal, a local initiative where the council and residents work together to make Wigan a better borough. By encouraging residents and local businesses to embrace technology, The Deal seeks to ensure the people of Wigan are fully equipped for the digital age.

On 26th May, we’re pleased to have Wigan Council’s deputy chief executive Alison Mckenzie-Folan to tell her story and experience of the digital project in an exclusive webinar. The hour-long webinar starts at 2.00pm, and will include an interactive Q&A session.
