New SLCC Podcast: ‘Making the Move to a Domain’

2 July 2024

Our new SLCC podcast ‘Making the Move to a Domain’ is now live on our website.

In this episode we talk to Sandra Lowe, Communications & Engagement, and Khidr Suleman, Domains’ Governance Lead, from the Parish Council Domains Helper Service Project Team at the Central Digital and Data Office (CDDO). This initiative aims to help councils in migrating to domains and provides benefits such as enhanced credibility and security. Sandra and Khidr outline common challenges such as cost and technical expertise while explaining how the service guides clerks through every step, from choosing the right domain registrar, to setting up and maintaining the domain.

With cost being a challenge for many councils we also hear about how the Cabinet Office has secured finite funding of up to £100 + VAT to help eligible parish councils offset the initial cost of setting up a domain.
