The message about the dangers of fakes is being taken to young people with the help of a Good Sports Don’t Fake It  teacher’s pack which includes discussion points and visual examples.
This is available to download, both in English and in Welsh, PDF and Word.

Leaflets and posters are now available to download - trading standards authorities can order hard copies from TSI press office.
