The Centre for Digital Public Services (CDPS) was set up to support the design and delivery of better public services in Wales. We are an arm’s length body of Welsh Government and, together with the chief digital officers in health, Welsh Government and local government, we are responsible for delivering the digital strategy for Wales.

We are here to support Wales to design and deliver better, sustainable digital public services. We will:
