Government launches new website on 17 October 2012
A new starting point for Government information goes live on 17 October 2012.
GOV.UK will bring much of the information published by the Government into one place.
You can start familiarising yourself with the new website before 17 October by visiting a trial, or 'beta', version of the website (see below).
Directgov and Businesslink
The new website will replace Directgov and Businesslink, which are being switched off.
Any links saved or bookmarked for these two sites will still work. But in most cases users will be taken straight through to the relevant information on GOV.UK
The legal adviser directory which includes information on legal aid providers and organisations which have achieved the Specialist Quality Mark and the public legal aid eligibility calculator will move to GOV.UK. If you have these bookmarked you will still get straight through to them.
Information for legal aid providers and about the LSC will continue to be on the LSC website. This will shortly be moving to the Justice site and we will be letting you know more about this soon.
Improvements and updates will continue to be made to the GOV.UK site over the coming weeks.
GOV.UK has been built by the Government Digital Service (GDS), which is part of the Cabinet Office.
