​Toolkits for supporting best practice when working with children and young people: 

Volunteering in the Arts

This toolkit has been produced to support small and medium-sized arts groups who struggle to improve the support they offer volunteers. Download the toolkit from Voluntary Arts.

Best Practice Principles

The principles are designed to act as a simple project management tool and ask questions at each stage of your project to take into account the different needs of everyone involved. These were written in partnership with Leeds’ cultural, education and community sectors and through focus groups with young people. Arts Council’s Quality Principles can be found here.

Getting In The Frame

This sets out some of the different best practice frameworks that are available to organisations working with children and young people. The guide describes the different elements of each framework such as cost, whether its self assessed and its suitability for different sized organisations. Download the toolkit (pdf, 562KB)
