Using the JLA logo

Below are some guidelines for the use of the James Lind Alliance (JLA), NIHR, and partner logos.  The JLA and NIHR logos are for the use of approved JLA Priority Setting Partnerships (PSPs) working with a JLA Adviser.  To request a file of the logos, please email   The logotypes must never be recreated or altered in any way. 


Materials for PSPs with multiple funding partners: JLA logo should be positioned top-left and partner logos should be positioned with equal weighting across the bottom (or where suitable). If it is not possible for the JLA logo to appear top-left, it can appear alongside other funding/supporting partners at the bottom.

Materials for PSPs that are solely NIHR-funded: JLA logo should be positioned top-right and the NIHR logo top-left (in conjunction with NIHR Identity Guidelines). Supporting partners can be acknowledged at the bottom. 

Materials for JLA as a whole: JLA and NIHR logos must be used together. The JLA logo should be positioned top-left, with the NIHR logo, bottom-right. The following relationship statement should be used or linked to when using these logos together:

Relationship statement 

The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) funds the infrastructure of the James Lind Alliance (JLA) to oversee the processes for Priority Setting Partnerships (PSPs). PSPs aim to help patients, carers and clinicians work together to agree which are the most important evidence uncertainties affecting their particular interest, in order to influence the prioritisation of future research in that area.

Please contact with any questions. 

Exclusion zone

The exclusion zone is the area around the logotype that should always be kept clear. To ensure that the JLA and NIHR logotypes remain clear, nothing should ever appear inside the exclusion zone, which is 8.5mm, and no other graphic or typography should appear in this area. For example:
