Applying for a third-party licence

Any partner agency or external organisation that wishes to use our logo, or produce materials on our behalf, is required to apply for a third-party licence.

The simple form captures contact information, so that we can circulate updates to our guidelines if necessary. It also asks for the duration of use (for example if a contract is in place for a certain number of months or years).

On approval, you will receive a copy of our logo pack, which includes a range of file formats for printed and digital media, plus our visual identity guidelines.
