Branding Guidelines for the Department for Communities

Date published: 25 July 2019

Last updated: 18 August 2021

Each year the Department for Communities (DfC) supports hundreds of projects through funding and grants.

It is important that funding for the delivery of initiatives and activities including capital projects is appropriately acknowledged to demonstrate that public money is supporting your work and organisation.

It is a condition of your grant or funding that you acknowledge the source of your funding for activities as the Department for Communities.

These guidelines will give you advice about how to acknowledge this, which logo(s) to use and how to use them.


You may use our logo appropriately in communications about work we are supporting. However, please check with us first before using it in a promotional capacity and allow at least three working days for us to approve.
