About Wooler Arts

About Us

Wooler Arts believes that getting involved with the arts and having access to creative opportunities improves our lives and enriches the place where we live and work and enjoy as visitors.

We aim to be an inclusive organisation, bringing together people of all ages and backgrounds with an interest in a wide range of visual arts, music and the performing arts, and the spoken and written word.

New skills can be learned and developed, existing interests nurtured, potential realised and fulfilled. Through diverse programmes of concerts and exhibitions there will be opportunities to experience some of the best examples in the performing and visual arts.

Wooler and Glendale already have special performance and gallery spaces as well as existing creative groups, and we are especially keen to welcome communities or individuals who have not so far felt drawn to engage with the creative arts.

 

Safeguarding

Wooler Arts has a duty of care to safeguard from harm all children, young people and vulnerable adults with whom it interacts. We strongly believe that these people have the right to be treated fairly, justly, and have the right to freedom from abuse and harm.

Our safeguarding policy details the organisational procedures and best practice as applicable to all Wooler Arts personnel. This includes employees, volunteers, those who work on a freelance basis, and members of the Wooler Arts Steering Group. It ensures that all staff and volunteers accept responsibility for the safeguarding of people in their care. All suspicions and allegations of abuse and poor practice will be taken seriously and responded to swiftly and appropriately.

 

Funding and Support

We are a not-for-profit organisation and rely on the generosity of individuals in order to survive. If you would like to become involved or support us, please write to info@woolerarts.org.uk or write to Wooler Arts, PO Box 134, Wooler, NE66 9ES.
