Involving, nurturing creativity and new talent as well as bringing music to wide audiences is at the heart of what Snape Maltings seeks to achieve. We also provide retail facilities and holiday lets as part of our trading arm so that people can enjoy our rural location and activities. In so doing we engage with children and young people both in teaching and performance and as audience and visitors to our site. It is imperative that Snape Maltings, both in its charitable and trading work, does all it can to ensure that the experience of children and young people with whom we have contact is safe and free from harm. This is also a requirement of the bodies that fund us as well as a requirement of the Charity Commission and the Arts Council England.
