The Family Arts Standards are designed to help families know what they should expect from an arts organisation that displays this logo. They should provide clear information to enable families to get the best out of the arts, whether it is an art gallery, a play, a dance performance and more.

Organisations with the Family Arts Standards badge will offer programming that is accessible to a range of ages, with clear guidance on appropriateness of content; take into account transport issues when planning activities; have clear pricing that allows for  the diversity of families; ask for and respond to feedback; have a clear complaints policy; be responsive to families of different ages and from different communities;  and ensure staff are helpful and trained to know the barriers for disabled family members. They also have to provide clear and honest information in print and on the internet about the facilities, which must be clean and safe, have access and seating for those with limited mobility, accessible toilets and baby changing facilities that are accessible to both sexes, free water, healthy food and drink options, and comfy seating for feeding babies, amongst other things.
