Equal Opportunities Policy

The Management Committee and staff of Phoenix Drum Corps believe in a society in which there is equal opportunity for all, but recognise that we live in a society which is still unequal in terms of access, resources, support and power.

In its engagement with others, and in its own group the drum coprs will aim to demostrate respect for diversity between people but challenge discrimitation or oppression.

The overiding considerations in making all appointments shall be the safety and security of young people. All who offer themselves as volunteers or staff will be considered equally.

No-one will be treated less faviourably than any other person because of their age, gender, marital status, race, class, colour, ethnic or national origin, mental or physical ability, political or religious beleifs
