Generating income from public sector websites

CAN generates income for public sector organisations across the UK through our Council Advertising Network. Around 50 local councils as well as dozens of tourism, job and transport websites in the public sector have already joined us.

Using our easy-to-install technology, we can sell advertising space on your website – to quality brands – at no cost to you.

We pay income generated from the ads directly to you every quarter. And you can monitor your earnings by logging into your own online dashboard.
