Today the new website was launched. The website, developed by the Place Standard Partners: Scottish Government, Public Health Scotland, Architecture and Design Scotland, Glasgow City Council, and the Improvement Service, brings together resources to support place-based work – for individuals, communities, and professionals alike. This includes case studies, tools and innovative examples to help shape investment and service decision making.

OurPlace creates a central resource which promotes the benefits of place and place-based working. Place has an enormous influence on the quality of our lives and our impact on the environment. The new site aims to help to make positive differences to communities in Scotland which in turn will help improve our health, our prosperity, our quality of life and protect our environment.

For everyone that is interested in involving young people in place based work and decision making we are delighted to see that our Young Placechangers Toolkit features in the Toolbox section of the website.

Young Placechangers puts young people in the lead role – bringing together the wider community to look at local spaces and plan improvements. The Young Placechangers programme has used a co-production approach to develop and pilot a training and support programme enabling young people to transform both the place they live, their relationship to it and the wider community. We have developed toolkits and case studies to support you to involve young people in place based decision making. Find out more at
