We enable public-purpose software and policy that is open and collaborative.

This results in higher quality services for the public that are more cost effective, with less risk and more local control.

We define ‘public code’ as open source software developed by public organizations, together with the policy and guidance needed for reuse.

What we do: codebase stewardship

Everything your project needs to be sustainable, collaborative and open.

About codebase stewardship.

Codebases we work with

This public code improves citizens' lives and experience of government every day.

We're proud to work with these codebase communities.

Why we exist: background

Public service delivery and governance depend on software, but this isn't always democratically accountable, accessible or sustainable.

We exist to enable other approaches.

Who we are

Together, we’re passionate about collaboration, open source and enabling a different way of working for public organizations.
