website launched website launched Wednesday, 17 October 2012

A new cross-government website has launched making it quicker and easier for you to interact with the government online.

The website which replaces Directgov and Business Link includes information on:
  • paying court fines online
  • understanding prison sentences
  • creating a power of attorney
  • applying for legal aid

Bringing this information together into one single website will help reduce the financial and administrative impact of running multiple government websites.

To help the transition to the new website, if you access Directgov and Business Link you will be automatically redirected to the correct content on 

The next stage of the project will involve merging the content of all government departments and many other public bodies into by the end of March 2014.

Take a look at the website and give us your feedback
