Building a 21st century government, together

We’re on a mission to help government in Australia be more open, and work collaboratively to solve our most pressing issues. 

What We Do

We bring citizens, government and industry together to collaboratively solve social issues.

Help, not sell

We make purposeful programs that transfer learning and build capability


We design and build services for, and with, users – always

Default to open

We operate in public – everything we make and do is open for all

How We Do It

We create opportunities for the public and private sectors to come together in a supported environment, to break down silos and create impact at scale using technology.

Wait, But Why?

We believe that collaboration and openness are key to designing, developing and deploying services that meet everyone’s needs.

Together, we’re rebuilding trust between government and people, by making the right stuff and making stuff right.

Built for the people,

by the people

With help from Code for Australia, talented people and governments across Australia have designed, developed and released amazing services.

How We Make A Difference

We’ve worked with governments across Australia to create long-lasting social change
