Welcome to the Public Sector Licence sign up portal

Since 1 April 2015, all licensed public sector organisations have been able to access PAF data for free at the point of use and benefit from using address and postcode information in the delivery of vital public services. 

To make the most of the new licensing arrangements, you will find a range of information and resources below. Once you have read this information and checked your eligibility, you can access our easy application process below.

If you are new to using PAF then you may wish to watch our short video that introduces you to the uses and benefits of PAF data.
