Councillor Theo Blackwell, Cabinet Member for Finance, Technology and Growth
Camden's approach to data and digital transformation is leading London and UK local government today.

“It not only delivers on Camden's local priorities, delivering better solutions for residents and businesses, it is also a ground-breaking blueprint for the future delivery of public services in a time of huge budget pressures.

“Through initiatives such as the Camden Account, our innovative use of open data and our new shared ICT and Digital Service we are helping to transform the way our residents and businesses engage and interact with us.

“This award is a resounding endorsement of the work of our staff to provide more effective services for all our citizens.”
Councillor Theo Blackwell, Cabinet Member for Finance, Technology and Growth

The borough hosts a world-class technology sector, is attracting the best talent in the emerging data sector and strives to be a leading digital council. As home to world-renowned institutions, including the British Library and the Francis Crick Institute, alongside companies such as Google UK, Deep Mind and ASOS, Camden is at the centre of digital growth in the UK.
