PLACED delivers activities that give young people an opportunity to learn about the towns and cities in which they live, why design is important to them and their community, and an understanding of how the buildings, public squares, parks and streets we use are created.

Inspiring generations about the built environment

PLACED delivers hands-on, creative programmes that excite, empower, enable and engage the public, in particular young people, about the built environment.

Our Consultation services support clients, developers and designers in undertaking meaningful engagement, whilst giving people a voice in local developments.

Working with schools and universities, our Education programmes give young people the opportunity to learn about the built world, whilst supporting access into professional careers.

As a Social Enterprise, we are committed to having a positive impact on local communities. The development of skills, increasing knowledge, raising aspiration and inspiring change are core to everything we do.

Activities are delivered by a team of over 80 volunteer PLACED Ambassadors including architects, urban designers, engineers, planners, interior designers and university students.
