Local authorities are saying some amazing things about our work.
"We have found working with the focusgov team to be a very productive process. The team are professional, flexible and very helpful and have worked with us to produce a website that we are very proud of."
"The service we have received from focusgov has been excellent. We have been fully supported throughout the process of implementing and developing our website. Any questions we raised were answered immediately and nothing was too much trouble."
"I can't believe we've gone from a few sentances on a boring council web site to our own Local Offer site like this, in only six weeks. It's brilliant."
"Thank you so much for all your help and support in getting us this great web site. It has been a dream come true for me...I always wanted to have a website and we now have something better than I ever imagined. We are very pleased and proud of the outcome."
