The UK aid branding guidance provides essential information for UK government departments and their implementing partners on when, where and how they should be using the UK aid logo on programmes funded by UK Official Development Assistance, or ODA, money (the UK government’s aid budget). This guidance, dated May 2018, supercedes the previous ‘Standards for use of the UK aid logo’, dated June 2014.
All ODA-funded programmes led by the Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) are required to use the UK aid logo in accordance with the UK aid branding guidance available to download from this page.
