Africa-UK Branding Guidelines
There are a number of brands and partners involved in Africa-UK. This can become confusing for
those engaged with the initiative. It is therefore crucial that we use consistent branding to
encourage greater recognition amongst the African diaspora and decision makers of the role Africa-
UK is playing.
The Africa-UK leaflet contains the logos of all organisations involved in Africa-UK (funders,
implementers, delivery partners and associate partners). These branding guidelines should be used
for all other materials (printed/ electronic/ on-line etc).

at the start of the material.
