The National Numeracy logo

 Our logo can only be used by our partners and only when communicating directly about our work together.  

The logo must only be placed on a white background, its colours and dimensions must not be altered. There should be clear white space around the logo.  No text, partner logos, or other page marks should be in this space. Don’t place the logo on a busy background that will affect legibility. Please don’t use any other colour or effect, other descriptors or taglines, rotate or distort, recreate, redraw or ‘box up’ the logo within a holding device.  

Please download and read the full logo guidance below before using our logo.
