Today, the GCS launched a new set of standards for the government communication profession.

A World Class Government Communication Service

The purpose of the GCS is to deliver world-class public service communications that support ministers’ priorities, enable the efficient and effective operation of public services, and improve people’s lives. It is held to account for the implementation of the annual Government Communications Plan.

To make all of this possible, GCS staff commit to observing the highest standard of communications practice, professional development and ethics.

The GCS has established a set of guidelines, models and templates to continually raise the quality of practice and build a world-class communication profession.
