Safeguarding at South Hill PArk

Here at South Hill Park in Bracknell we work with children and young people in many different ways. Youth theatre classes, summer school projects, community productions, workshops and work experience placements are just some examples, and we want you to feel that you have as positive an experience as is possible in your time with us.

We expect every person who works with us to engage in activities to the best of their ability and to respect other people using the Arts Centre. You have the right to expect things of us too.
