London is a vast metropolis with little social cohesion. Young people often feel alienated from developments in their areas. Schooling is uneven and many face barriers in their career progression. Proud Places is a free pioneering youth engagement programme that offers new and inspiring opportunities for children at risk across London. It encourages young people to take responsibility for where they live and it focuses on the communities which need the most help.


Proud Places offers a chance for 11-18 year olds to get up close to heritage projects, learn new skills and discuss themes related to their local area. This conference is an opportunity to share learnings with the youth sector as well as the arts/heritage sector and encourage other organisations to commit to removing barriers to engagement.

Heritage of London Trust’s conference has been held every year since 1983 and is a unique occasion when all London’s local authorities are invited. Morning papers will be on the theme of early intervention and positive opportunities; later morning young people themselves will present, and in the afternoon we will explore the challenges and benefits of working with different groups, and impact measurement.

Our keynote speaker will be The Lord Bird MBE, social entrepreneur and founder of the Big Issue. We’ll have over 20 speakers, exhibitions and demos throughout the day.


Proud Places is funded thanks to the generosity of the Jones Day Foundation. This year's conference is proudly sponsored by Delancey.
