Equality and Diversity

Furness Music Centre is committed to eliminating discrimination and encouraging diversity amongst our staff and our members.  Our aim is that they will be fully representative of all sections of society and each person feels respected and able to give of their best

We summarise this by saying that we welcome all whatever their ability to pay or play!  You can download a copy of our Equality and Diversity Policy here

Health and Safety

We want all our members and our tutors to be safe while they are at rehearsals, concerts and on tour.  Our rehearsal space in The Muse is a relatively safe space with few hazards.  If any accident does happen, a number of our members hold qualifications in First Aid, and we have a First Aid Kit for them to use.
