principles and policies
Shared Practice is an independent partnership dedicated to sustainable development, participatory democracy and creativity.
We aim to work collaboratively with commissioners, funders, external partners and associates, while retaining independence and integrity.
We also aim to work to the highest standards of openness, honesty and transparency. The partners belong to the relevant professional bodies including the Musicians' Union, Equity and the Performing Rights Society.

spacerWe chose our structure of a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) to reflect our values of personal responsibility and fairness. We therefore chose a structure which was designed not to minimise tax contributions or create a capital asset, but rather to operate as a non-profit distributing organisation.

Content on the web changes rapidly. In 2010 we agreed to let the Brtish Library Archive our site so it is preserved and publicly available for current and future research and reference.

spacerWe are committed to making our site accessible to everyone, so we have designed it to run without the need to have additional software (eg plug-ins) installed on your computer, and just using a reasonably up to date browser. In this way, we have also designed our site to use minimal resources to run, limiting picture file sizes, choice of fonts, use of animations, etc. with an aim to be as environmentally responsible as possible. In most browsers you can make pages larger via a View option.

For more information on accessibility guidelines and recommendations see the Web Accessibility Initaitive and the W3C Content Accessibility Guidelines.
