The fifth annual Government Communications Plan sets out the main communications campaigns the profession will deliver in 2016/17.

At the centre of this is the government’s narrative: the work of all government communicators should further its three priority themes:

  • Providing economic security
  • Protecting our national security
  • Extending opportunity

The plan also outlines how the Government Communication Service will change and improve, to produce communications that are more effective and efficient than ever.
