IF YOU ARE AGED 18 OR UNDER, PLEASE ASK A PARENT OR CARER TO CONTACT PROVIDERS ON YOUR BEHALF

The providers listed in our Directory have all confirmed to us that they have the following in place.

• DBS checks
• Public Liability Insurance
• Child Protection awareness training and to be able to refer to guidance on how this relates to their work

We check these when an Associate is interviewed. Associates are then required to confirm that these have been refreshed or renewed at appropriate points. We do not however, request to see the refreshed or renewed documentation.

We also require Associates to provide at least two referees to whom they can direct their clients if required. We do not automatically take up references and therefore do not hold stock references for our Associates.

If you decide to contact or hire them, you should always ask to see evidence of their DBS check and Insurance yourself, take up their references and ask questions about both the safety and quality aspects of their music related practice.
