Brass Bands England’s BandSafe is an industry leading selection of tools, training and resources to help you manage your band or music group in a way that safeguards all your members from harm and the group from possible reputational damage. A safer group will create a healthy atmosphere for all and should have the added benefit of increased membership, developing younger players and community linking.
The programme is made up of several elements that you can use to help you become BandSafe:
BandSafe Toolkit: will help you write and understand your organisations safeguarding policy and has been developed in partnership with the NSPCC.
BandSafe Training: also developed with the NSPCC this 3-hour workshop is tailored to the challenges you might face in a band or voluntary music-making environment. A must for all designated safeguarding & welfare officers.
BBE-held BOPA: this online application process will allow your music group to comply with the need for Child Performance Licensing without getting swamped with all the admin. You will need to have completed the BandSafe Training and Toolkit in order to use the BBE-held BOPA.
