WordPress in UK government: an informal audit

I thought it was about time I compiled a list of all the UK (central) government web projects I know of, which use WordPress. Partly because I’m meeting some people during the week to talk about it; partly to start preparation for the session I’ve volunteered to give at July’s WordCamp UK. This is off the top of my head, and I’m sure I’ve missed a few obvious examples: please leave additions and amendments in the comments.
I’m only looking for live sites: I know of several more projects ‘in the works’ (and am always keen to receive tipoffs!). I’ve noted those built on Steph’s open-source Commentariat theme with an asterisk.

  1. Just to note that Cabinet Office really sponsored CivilBlogs and would therefore probably deserve to claim ownership. COI are merely the current hosting guardians.

  2. Some more DIUS ones:
    http://hedebate.jiscinvolve.org: Higher Education Debate (WordPress MU via JISC)
    http://talk.dius.gov.uk/blogs/studentlistening: Student Listening blog (on our in-house MU setup)
    http://talk.dius.gov.uk/blogs/adultlearning: support for Informal Adult Learning white paper policy development
    We’ve also got it running powering some internal projects including: an interactive guide to our corporate methodology for policy development; and a commentable/feedback form hybrid collaborative best practices document for Private Office staff.
    We’re very keen on WordPress 🙂
