Local authority directory

Local Authority Directory

A simple, production-ready directory of services that can help residents cope if they're staying at home due to the coronavirus pandemic.




Originally commissioned by Camden Borough Council, in London, it has: a simple search page where the user selects the kind of help they need and gives their postcode, a results page showing relevant services, nearest first; and a read-only API for other applications to integrate.

The most recent beta version also includes an optional map view, a recommended service feature, which bumps one service per category to the top of the list, admin user accounts and a proper admin panel, and a form for the public to submit their own service suggestions


Examples of the Directory in action can be found here and here.  The FutureGov team have put together a useful walkthrough of the service at the Github link below.
