Property company launches youth engagement toolkit

A new youth engagement toolkit, Voice.Opportunity.Power. aims to improve how professionals - designers, developers, councils and youth and sports organisations – can meaningfully engage young people in planning, development and regeneration.

Created by Grosvenor Britain & Ireland, the TCPA, Sport England and ZCD Architects, the toolkit is a free resource with practical guidance on how to involve young people (aged 11-18) in the way that places are built and managed. It seeks to place them on an equal footing alongside other stakeholders in the process and responds directly to the Government’s call in the new planning White Paper for greater youth engagement.

Over 20 additional organisations including local authorities, developers such as British Land and Peabody and grassroots organisations such as St Andrew’s (the oldest youth club in the world) have endorsed the toolkit. They all recognise that young people have a right to be involved and that their involvement creates better places for everyone – young and old alike.
