How to acknowledge your Welsh Government grant

How to acknowledge your Welsh Government grant

As part of your grant from the Welsh Government, you must acknowledge your funding on social media, through press releases, and by displaying our partnership logo. The information on this page will help you to do this.

There are five funding programmes that we deliver (or have delivered) on behalf/in partnership with the Welsh Government: Nature Networks, Community Woodlands, The Woodland Investment Grant (TWIG), Local Places for Nature and Local Places for Nature – Breaking Barriers.

How to refer to your grant

If you are referencing your grant in marketing materials such as press releases or on your website, please use the following lines, according to the programme you are receiving funding from:

Nature Networks

This project is funded by the Nature Networks Fund. It is being delivered by the Heritage Fund, on behalf of the Welsh Government.

Community Woodlands

This project is funded by the Community Woodlands scheme. It is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with the Welsh Government. 

TWIG

This project is funded by the The Woodland Investment Grant (TWIG) scheme. It is being delivered by The National Lottery Heritage Fund in partnership with the Welsh Government. 

Local Places for Nature

Using our partnership logo

You can download the relevant bilingual partnership logo(s) you need from this page and use them anywhere where people can clearly see them. Please read the information below to determine which partnership logo is right for you. 

The National Lottery

Community Woodlands, TWIG and Local Places for Nature are jointly funded by the Welsh Government and money raised by The National Lottery. Therefore, for these programmes, please use our logo with The National Lottery crossed fingers in the top left corner.

Breaking Barriers and Nature Networks are funded only by the Welsh Government, so please use our logo without the crossed fingers.

You can download your relevant logo from either of the following folders:


Logo formats

We have logos available in the following formats:

  • JPEG – this format is widely used for standard publishing (for example, to use on PowerPoint or MS word.) These are available in black only.   
  • PNG – for high quality web publishing
  • EPS – for high quality printing, used by graphic designers

When using a partnership logo, please use it in its entirety to ensure the funding and delivery relationship is maintained.

The logos should never be altered, for example, do not: distort or resize disproportionately, use one language on its own as they must be bilingual, remove any typeface, or change the direction of the Welsh dragon – it must always face to the left.

Colours

There are two colour versions of the partnership logos: black and white.

Your background colour will determine which version to use:

  • if using a one-colour print, use the black version of the logo
  • when placing the logo on dark-coloured backgrounds, always use the white version of the logo

The logo must only be reproduced in black or white, do not use any other colour.

Large acknowledgement

For larger acknowledgement materials – for example on outdoor interpretation panels – please make sure the logo is big enough to be clearly visible from a distance of five metres.

Minimum size

The minimum size refers to the whole width of the partnership logo. To make sure the logo is clear and legible, the minimum size it should appear is 108mm in print and 306px on screen.

Sharing on social media

If possible and where space allows, please tag the Welsh Government and the Heritage Fund in your posts.
