Local authorities

There are many demands placed on local authorities to provide a range of services for people and businesses. We will support your local economic recovery and encourage uptake of digital technology throughout your public services and within your organisation.

Jisc provides support, helping you uncover new opportunities to implement safe, secure and effective e-infrastructure environment. Allowing you to focus on delivering your essential services in the best way. From supporting your public facing digital services to easing staff collaboration, we’re here for you.

“Govroam takes away the need for users who walk in to reception at a site to say: ‘I’m here for a meeting or for the day – can I have your SSID and password?’”

Stuart Cockett, Kent Public Service Network (KPSN)

Councils that are already using Jisc’s govroam public sector roaming service can help address digital poverty by enabling eduroam - a Jisc service developed for the education sector that connects millions of students and staff at universities and colleges, nationwide. This action has the potential to make eduroam available in thousands of public spaces across the country – such as libraries, community centres and public halls - extending access to ‘zero touch’ internet connectivity, with no extra charge from Jisc.

Housing associations

Jisc’s core purpose to support public good aligns perfectly with the values of housing associations. We know you make a difference to the people living in the homes you manage and do an incredible job serving your communities.

Whether you wish to modernise your digital infrastructure, boost operating efficiencies or become more agile, we can provide everything you need.

“The key to the successful implementation, migration and transfer of data was the knowledge-sharing that happened between Jisc, our current provider and our own IT team through the ‘discovery days’ at the very start of the project.”

Louisa Dowsett, corporate project manager, Cheltenham Borough Homes


The pressures on the NHS to meet continuously evolving healthcare needs are immense. In the midst of it all, the NHS wish to deliver first class front-line healthcare to improve the health and well-being of everyone, and we can make that easier.

We also recognise the challenges you face delivering healthcare in the directive to centralise services, balance investment in medical technology, and cut costs. Jisc can help ease these challenges and encourage staff to connect and collaborate, efficiently and cost-effectively.

“We expected so many positives from the move to the public cloud, and they’ve all been realised. It’s the breakthrough that will lead to new and more efficient ways of working across the organisation.”

Rachel Watson, head of digital, Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust
