Get Involved logo and branding (Norwich City Council)
Norwich City Council's Get Involved programme supports those living and working in the City to participate in community activity easily in a way that suits them.
Residents are invited to identify things they’d like to do in their local neighbourhoods and communities and Get Involved provides support and guidance to help make those activities happen. When you see the Get Involved logo, it’s a chance to do something great in the city. Voluntary organisations or community groups are welcome to use the brand to show that you have chances for local people to ‘Get Involved’.
If you’d like to use the logo on leaflets, to create posters, in your social media or in other publicity and promotional material you can find the graphics you might need via the link.
