Where does this guidance apply?

The geographical remit of the guidance depends on the partner organisation that has produced the content piece. While some content pieces are specifically tailored for England due to the core remit of the relevant partner organisation, others may have broader applicability across the UK. We have provided labelling on each content piece to indicate which area of the UK the guidance piece applies to.
