Sanjay helping the Cabinet Office deliver positive results on the web.

The Cabinet Office sits at the very centre of government and, together with the Treasury, provides the 'head office' of government. The Cabinet Office has an overarching purpose of 'making government work better'.

The Department has three core functions that enable it to achieve this overarching purpose:

  • Supporting the Prime Minister - to define and deliver the Government's objectives.
  • Supporting the Cabinet - to drive the coherence, quality and delivery of policy and operations across departments.
  • Strengthening the Civil Service - to ensure the civil service is organised effectively and has the capability in terms of skills, values and leadership to deliver the Government's objectives
