These guidelines are delivered with a set of training materials and facilitator notes. The training materials can be delivered in an online or face to face context as the situation determines.

The aim of the training materials is to give a practical application to the guidelines. They are designed to encourage host organisations to reflect on their current opportunities and practices and develop them in line with the guidelines.

To this end the training materials and guidelines are designed to enable small and subtle nudges to existing behaviour.

Further information on accessing the training materials can be found by emailing:
