Hear from Kate Hurr, Digital & Innovation Manager, and Karl Relph, Business Analyst & low-code builder, from Cumbria County Council, they spoke at a recent Gov Share event about their COVID-19 response.

They share how the council have been active in agile development during the pandemic. Cumbria created a multi-agency “Track & Trace” app, built using Liberty Create.
