Details

The Distance Aware initiative

The Distance Aware initiative has been recently endorsed by the Department of Health and Social Care to promote the need for ongoing distancing for all. Also endorsed by Welsh Government and supported by the Bevan Commission, all badge/poster templates are available to download (along with design guidelines and a comms pack for organisations). You can also find links to places where you can acquire badges or lanyards.

The optional badges on this page

The optional badges on this page can be used to show the carrier may have difficulties or concerns in maintaining social distancing. They are another example that can be used to signal to others around them that they need to pay attention and be given space. Please note they are not part of the Distance Aware initiative described above.
