When I come up with any issues, I just go to the team. There's lots of collaboration, there's lots of sharing. The way this LocalGov Drupal product group shares information is brilliant.

We're always looking for people to contribute and improve LocalGov Drupal. Some ideas for how you can help are:

  • Developers - contribute code, issue reports, bugfixes, test pull requests and documentation. 
  • Front-end developers and designers - share new theming, and do accessibility testing. 
  • Content designers - road-test new features and suggest improvements
  • Service designers - share your user research and documentation 

Every contribution is valuable. As always, you can get in touch at or in Slack.
