Becoming a Charter Partner gives you the tools, resources and policies you need to start implementing family-friendly working practices.

By working in partnership with PiPA you will gain access to insights from our extensive programme of research as well as direct experience working with a range of organisations, each with their own remit.

The programme offers multiple tried-and-tested solutions and strategies as well as case studies, sample budgets, guides and practical resources.

Interventions are adopted cross-organisationally and adapted to work in different settings. There’s no one-size fits all solution. We identify bespoke strategies appropriate to the organisation’s scale, circumstances and budget.

The combination of Charter Programme, symposiums, events, toolkit and expert guidance provide a unique set of resources - designed by and for the performing arts.
