Phase start 01 October 2019
Phase Estimated end 13 February 2020



Following the success we had moving our Hackney Council public-facing internet site from GOSS to WordPress late last year, we decided it would be in our best interest to move our internal intranet over too. 

Whilst making the move, our devs and designers have been working hard to integrate GDS templates/designs into WordPress in an attempt to make the content more accessible for our staff.

In addition to this, we aim to make our intranet available outside of VDI and also available on mobile and tablets.
