Use the back link component to help users go back to the previous page in a multi-page transaction.
When to use this component
Always include the back link component on GOV.UK question pages.
You can include a back link on other pages within a multi-page transaction, if it makes sense to do so.
When not to use this component
Never use the back link component together with breadcrumbs. If necessary, you should do research with your users to learn which they find more helpful in your service.
How it works
Always place back links at the top of a page.
