Campaign Resource Centre information
The Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID) marketing campaign brand and branding tools (“the brand assets”) and partner tools are provided by OHID to enable partners to support OHId marketing campaigns and/or run their own activity.
The brand assets comprise the brand and design guidelines, the "Change4Life" and sub-brand logos, and the campaign typefaces, primary and secondary colours, and visual characters.
The partner tools comprise downloadable guidance and activities.
Acceptance of the terms gives you access to the brand assets and partner tools.
Important notice for national organisations and brands using Change4Life
Access to and use of the brand assets and/or partner tools is permitted to national organisations or brands only on receipt of signed Terms of Engagement.
If you intend to use the brand assets and/or tools or run Change4Life activity of any kind on a national basis, please register on the Change4Life website as a national partner or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Terms for local supporters
Access to and use of the brand assets and/or partner tools is permitted to local supporters on the following terms.
By using the marketing campaign brand assets of the Office for Health Improvement and Disparities (OHID) and/or partner tools you agree to be bound by these terms, which shall take effect immediately on your first use of the brand assets and/or tools.
If you do not agree to be bound by all of the following terms, please do not access and/or use the brand assets/tools.
OHID may change these terms from time to time, so you should check these terms every time you access the brand assets and/or toolkits. Your continued use of brand assets and/or tools will be deemed acceptance of the updated or amended terms. If you do not agree to the changes, you should cease using the brand assets and/or tools.
The terms are split into 2 parts: responsibilities of local supporters; and conditions of use of the brand assets/tools.
Responsibilities of local supporters
As part of the Campaign Resource Centre, you agree to:
- Amplify and extend awareness of the OHID's marketing campaign messages through your own activity.
- Contribute your unique expertise to the successful development and delivery of the campaign.
- Support OHID, on request, with feedback or case studies of your campaign activity.
- Operate in accordance with best practice guidelines or codes of conduct as outlined by the relevant industry bodies, trade associations or professional institutions to which you belong or by which your trade/sector is governed.
- Support the behaviour-change goals of the campaign, specifically persuading citizens to adopt both a healthier diet and to engage in regular physical activity.
- Accept that being part of this campaign by no means entitles you to claim that OHID endorses your product(s) or services in any way.
Conditions of use of the brand assets
You are entitled to use the brand assets/tools, provided you agree to:
- Read and follow the brand guidelines provided on the website.
- Acknowledge that Government, through OHID, will create, own and retain all rights to a campaign idea, brand and set of creative assets, including key campaign messages.
- Avoid bringing the campaign into disrepute.
- Accept that, should disputes arise concerning compliance with the campaign terms for local supporters; the brand guidelines; appropriate use of brand/messaging; or your association with the campaign; these will be adjudicated by OHID's board, which will have final jurisdiction. If OHID requires you to cease your involvement in the campaign, it shall have immediate effect.
If you are a local commercial or profit-making organisation you additionally agree:
- not to use the campaign brand on-pack under any circumstances
- not to use the brand assets on-pack except with the express permission of OHID
- not to use the brand assets or your association with the campaign in any way that could imply or promote false or unsubstantiated health benefits of your own products or services

We may from time to time provide interactive services on our site including, without limitation:
- chat rooms
- bulletin boards
Where we do provide any interactive service, we will provide clear information to you about the kind of service offered, if it is moderated and what form of moderation is used (including whether it is human or technical).
We will do our best to assess any possible risks for users (and in particular, for children) from third parties when they use any interactive service provided on our site, and we will decide in each case whether it is appropriate to use moderation of the relevant service (including what kind of moderation to use) in the light of those risks.
However, we are under no obligation to oversee, monitor or moderate any interactive service we provide on our site, and we expressly exclude our liability for any loss or damage arising from the use of any interactive service by a user in contravention of our content standards, whether the service is moderated or not.
The use of any of our interactive services by a minor is subject to the consent of their parent or guardian. We advise parents who permit their children to use an interactive service that it is important that they communicate with their children about their safety online, as moderation is not fool proof. Minors who are using any interactive service should be made aware of the potential risks to them.
Where we do moderate an interactive service, we will normally provide you with a means of contacting the moderator, should a concern or difficulty arise.
These content standards apply to any and all material that you may contribute to our site (contributions), and to any interactive services associated with it.
