About Croydon Digital
The voice of Croydon's tech community
Croydon Digital is a shared space bringing together voices from Croydon businesses, community groups, residents, the council and wider public sector to foster collaboration and promote Croydon’s digital scene – and, in so doing, to accelerate, celebrate and document the digital revolution at the heart of Croydon’s current regeneration.
Our collective digital ambition
Croydon is changing on a scale and at a pace not seen since the 1960s – and this time we have the internet and rapid tech innovation bringing both new challenges and immense opportunities.
Our council, tech employers, residents and communities have a shared ambition to maximise the potential for digital transformation to radically enhance our borough’s public services, spaces, economy and jobs – making Croydon an even better place to live, work, learn and do business, enhanced by delightful digital experiences and a thriving digital economy.
This site builds upon the great work that has been done in the past to bring people together across sectors to make things happen in Croydon – this time with increased engagement and openness from the council.
Powered by Croydon Council
Croydon Digital is a platform and brand for the whole Croydon community, powered by Croydon Council. The Croydon Digital Service , the new digital team inside the council, is an active participant in the community, regularly contributing to the blog and attending events.
Croydon is an ambitious council. The Corporate Plan sets out the council’s strategic objectives, including the need for change in how it delivers services, to improve outcomes for the borough’s residents, businesses and communities.
The council’s new Croydon Digital Service has a remit to look after internal technology services, develop new, digital-age services for residents, and to support the development of Croydon as a digital place.
They can’t possibly do this alone, however. The only way this can succeed is if the council works collaboratively with other organisations and sectors in the local area – hence the creation of this site.
