National Map of Shared Services

The Local Government Association have used Googlemaps to visualise shared services  throughout England as shown in the map below.

Although shared services may not be suitable for every council or for that matter every service, the drastic public sector cuts we are witnessing mean major changes for every Local Authority. A search of the Guardian’s Government Computing web pages show how many councils are planning or implementing shared services

The colours on the map indicate which service is being shared, the stars indicate operational shared services.

The interactive map and the source data can be accessed via the LGA’s website
