Member Toolkit

The PiPA Toolkit is a collection of case studies, resources and ‘how to’ guides designed by the industry, for the industry, supporting organisations taking part in the PiPA Charter Programme. The Toolkit documents the learning and experience of organisations who have already trialled and implemented family friendly initiatives. Sharing the process in this way allows others to see what’s possible and the practical knowledge reduces risk, making it easier to adapt the tools and adopt new ways of working. The Toolkit & Resources area is for organisations taking part in the PiPA Charter Programme only. If you are already a member click the link below to gain access.

What is the Charter Programme?


The Charter Programme is a tried and tested framework which will provide your organisation with the tools, resources and policies you need to start implementing family-friendly working practices.

The PiPA Best Practice Charter Programme provides participating organisations with data-driven insights, comprehensive toolkit, ongoing collaboration and access to the growing network of PiPA partners in order to work towards achieving the 10 points on the Best Practice Charter.

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.
