Bullet Points


Bullet Points are used to highlight important pieces of information.

They will help to provide information and will typically follow a colon.


If the text that follows the bullet point is not a full sentence, it does not need a capital letter or a full stop. If the text that follows the bullet point is a full sentence, it should have a capital letter and a full stop.
