Home Office

New government website to be launched

 

 

From October, the Business Link and Directgov websites will close down to make way for a new government website called www.gov.uk.

 

CRB information and guidance which is currently available on Directgov and Business Link is being moved to the new website, and will be available from October. Similar to the way in which the information on Directgov and Business Link is written for different audiences, you will find a business section on the new website where organisations can find guidance. There will also be a citizen-focused area where our applicants can find out what they need to do for CRB checks.

 

The Home Office website, including the CRB section, will continue to operate as it is for the time being, which means services such as online tracking and ISA Adult First can still be accessed from there. To minimise disruption for you and your organisations, we will also be making sure that all the detailed guidance which you use on a regular basis continues to be available from the Home Office website.

 

The development of the new www.gov.uk website follows a review of government digital services, which was commissioned by the Minister for the Cabinet Office and undertaken by the government’s Digital Champion, Martha Lane Fox, founder of holiday website lastminute.com.

 

Her report recommended that all government online content should be moved to a single website to allow the public access to all government information and transactional digital services from one web address. It is intended that services are organised by purpose rather than around departmental structures.

Eventually, all central government organisations will be expected to move their website information onto GOV.UK.  We will be providing more information and guidance about the changes in future editions of CRB News.
