Our partners

This toolkit has been created by ZCD Architects and Grosvenor Britain & Ireland with the TCPA and Sport England.

Grosvenor Britain & Ireland is part of a family-owned global property company. We make and manage neighbourhoods and have been doing this for over 340 years. Our heartland is in London’s West End, where we support about 9,000 residents and nearly 1,000 businesses. We also create sustainable new neighbourhoods in London and across the South of England. We try to think long-term and give equal weight to the social and commercial impact of everything we do. This toolkit is one way that we are delivering on a commitment in Positive Space (our Community Charter) to improve how we engage locally and listen first. Read more here.

ZCD Architects is a multidisciplinary practice with work ranging from award-winning buildings to masterplanning and regeneration. Creative, rigorous, innovative and playful we deliver projects across the public and private sectors – always motivated by our commitment to high quality design with a social purpose. Our people-centred approach puts people at the heart of everything we do, whether we are creating a beautiful new home, or advocating for the involvement of young people in the design of our cities.

Town and Country Planning Association campaigns for the reform of the UK’s planning systems to make them more responsive to people’s needs and aspirations and to promote sustainable development. We work to create places where everyone can thrive, by improving the planning system to be more responsive to people’s needs and to create sustainable and inclusive places.

Sport England Is a public body under the Department for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport. We are working towards an active nation where everyone feels able to do sport and physical activity, no matter their age, background or gender. We aim to do this by providing expertise, insight and funding that improves the nation’s long term physical and mental health.

Thank you to our supporting partners for their input and expertise in the creation of Voice, Opportunity, Power.

These organisations have helped shape the toolkit through participation in various workshops, focus groups and review phases. Through this process the toolkit has evolved from an initial concept, to a 5-stage session plan, with practical guidance and activities that can be applied to any site.

Huge thank you to the various youth organisations and young people that have played an important role in the toolkit development. They have given insightful feedback on the session plans and overall design and taken part in the research carried out by Beatfreeks.
