Branch Website Launched

The Devon & Cornwall Branch was very proud to launch its new website at the 2016 Branch AGM.


This site will be the place where all members can find the important things they need to know, connect with each other, keep abreast of the work of Equity in our region, stay up to date with industry developments and how they affect members and get the chance to become involved in local campaigns to improve our industry.


Constantly updated, this is the place to visit for everything you need to know regarding Equity in Devon and Cornwall.

If you haven't done so, please sign this petition to help our fellow member:

Meanwhile, the good news is that, although the situation is not yet over, it certainly is moving in the right direction...
