COVID-19 UPDATE

Design Council is now working virtually in order to safeguard the health and wellbeing of our staff and stakeholders, and continue our mission to make life better by design. We will continue to convene people from across all disciplines and sectors – from grassroots to government – over the coming weeks. We know that our stakeholders will have many questions about how to adapt to life during and after COVID-19, from safeguarding our health and wellbeing, to reshaping and rebuilding local economies, to leading more sustainable lives. 

We are currently exploring how we can best support those of you who are thinking about how you can reshape and deliver your services, or adapt your spaces given our changed way of life at this time. Please do get in touch to share your thoughts or if you think we can support you, email us on innovation@designcouncil.org.uk.

Whatever the question, design has an answer.

Design Council champions the power of design to tackle the biggest challenges of our time and bring about real, positive change in people’s lives.

Every day we consult with industry, government and individuals to advise them on how design can improve the things that matter most. 

How can we improve our health and wellbeing? The places we live? The communities we’re all part of? These are the questions we seek to answer, as we strive to make Britain better by design.
