Home Connections & LocalGov Drupal: Doing more with less


Home Connections recently sponsored LocalGov Drupal Week.

The theme of the week was "Doing more with less". Home Connections tells us how they use our platform to do just that...


We are in a digital age where government organisations are under increasing pressure to provide efficient and transparent services. 

Home Connections has just relaunched 35 websites, powered by LocalGov Drupal, embodying the theme of LocalGov Drupal week, "doing more with less."

LocalGov Drupal, a content management system tailored specifically for the public sector, equips organisations with a robust platform that enhances communication, collaboration, and accessibility. 

Home Connections, a leading non-profit software solutions provider and social enterprise uses this CMS for all the websites it develops, manages and maintains for housing associations, local authorities and public organisations.

Home Connection’s decision to work with LocalGov Drupal is a strategic move towards achieving higher efficiency and cost-effectiveness in delivering services. The built-in capabilities of LocalGov Drupal mean that developers spend less time on the basics and more time implementing custom features.

By choosing Drupal LocalGov, our customers can improve their services and set an example for other public bodies looking to optimise their digital presence in a budget-conscious world.


Cost-effective solutions

In the face of budget constraints and the ever-present need to make the best use of resources, the LocalGov Drupal allows the public sector to "do more with less." 

With its open-source nature, LocalGov Drupal eliminates the need for costly licensing fees and reduces ongoing maintenance expenses. This cost-effective approach ensures that resources, such as improving public services and infrastructure, can be allocated where needed.



One of the primary benefits of LGD is its commitment to accessibility. 

All our websites are designed with inclusivity in mind, ensuring that information and services are available to everyone, regardless of their abilities or the devices they use. This inclusive approach complies with legal standards and reflects each organisation's dedication to serving all citizens.


Robust security and compliance

Security and data privacy are paramount for the public sector. LocalGov Drupal strongly emphasises security, providing the necessary tools and features to safeguard sensitive information. 

Compliance with data protection regulations is made easier, reducing the risk of data breaches and ensuring the public's trust is maintained. These features are at the core of LocalGov Drupal, allowing development teams to spend time on other key priorities.


Simple content management

The LocalGov framework simplifies content management, enabling our customers to keep their websites up-to-date and relevant. LocalGov's intuitive content editing tools make it easier to ensure that the public has access to the latest information, policies, and resources.



Home Connections’ commitment extends to environmental sustainability. By adopting the LocalGov Drupal, we help contribute to a greener future. The open-source nature of Drupal minimises the environmental footprint associated with proprietary software development. In addition, the framework's efficiency helps reduce server loads and energy consumption.
