Adaptation and testing of the GBG for the United Kingdom was supported with a grant from the Knowledge Transfer Partnerships programme (KTP). KTP aims to help businesses to improve their competitiveness and productivity through the better use of knowledge, technology and skills that reside withinthe UK Knowledge Base. This KTP was funded by the Technology Strategy Board along with the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) and a matched contribution from Oxfordshire County Council.

The American Institutes for Research (AIR) provided support and guidance to the project through sharing, under license, their programme and materials for implementing the Good Behaviour Game. Oxford Brookes University holds a licence from AIR to use their materials, adapted for the UK context, for the implementation of the GBG as part of a programme of work incorporating evaluation of the GBG in the UK.
