Notes and Guidance 

Partnerships  

ADSS Cymru welcomes working in partnership with a range of external organisations, we also seek opportunities for income generation through sponsorship. However, it is vital that we maintain our independence and do not allow external partnerships to bring the name of ADSS Cymru into disrepute.  This section has been devised to ensure clarity and openness to all stakeholders.  

ADSS Cymru seeks to: 

  • Establish productive relationship with business partners 
  • Generate income from those partnerships 
  • Be open and transparent in its dealings with external organisations 
  • Work on initiatives that do not compromise the independent status and reputation of ADSS Cymru   
  • Work with organisations who are consistent with our values 
  • Ensure no company/organisation can expect exclusive relations with ADSS Cymru or one that is designed to give that company/organisation an advantage over its competitors  

ADSS Cymru endorsement / use of logo 

ADSS Cymru does not endorse or approve products or companies, a statement to this effect will be included alongside promotion associated with products (such as roundtable debates and ‘think pieces’).

ADSS Cymru will normally only endorse events and publications which it has written, organised, commissioned or where it is a partner with another organisation which is jointly producing the event or document. 

In cases where ADSS Cymru does endorse an event or publication it is essential that: 

  1. ADSS Cymru retains some control over how the logo is used on the relevant page/screen/website and how it relates to other logos (to ensure that its “premium” status is respected in design terms). 
  1. Published ‘think pieces’ must be brand neutral while recognising the support provided by business partners 
  1. Our logo is a fundamental component of all ADSS Cymru communication. To maintain a strong and consistent visual identity, it must be reproduced correctly at all time. (see separate sheet).
