BandSafe is a free online self-assessment toolkit for Brass Bands. The toolkit has been designed by Brass Band musician and Safeguarding Champion Heidi Bradley and is based upon a set of standards written by the NSPCC for youth organisations. The aim of BandSafe is to support Bands in the development of policies and procedures, that are fit for purpose and in place to minimise risks to the members and integrity of the Band.
The online toolkit and all supporting documents are free to access for all brass bands regardless of their membership status to Brass Bands England. However, Brass Bands England members may also benefit from support available to help you with the actions within your plan. Brass Bands England are also currently working towards BandSafe becoming a kitemark accreditation. In order to achieve this kitemark a band would need to be a member of Brass Bands England.
