"This is the sort of thing I want to do now, I really feel there's nothing in my way for doing stuff like this."

COVID FRIENDLY VISITS
Site visits are fully Covid risk-assessed. Groups can be as small as necessary and social distancing guidelines will be followed at all times.
Proud Places is a London-wide education programme inspiring young people with the world around them. Using heritage projects we introduce children aged 7 and upwards to important themes in everyday places… the hidden stories of London and why they matter.
Through free site visits and school workshops, this is a chance to find out about buildings, conservation and craftsmanship – what you never knew about the city all around you.
The programme helps young people improve their life choices as well as their life skills. It has been developed with our Proud Places Young Ambassadors and will run for three years, with funding from the Jones Day Foundation.

Emma Cons was a pioneering social reformer, who campaigned for better housing and education for the poor of Victorian London and the right of women to be in power.
"Not gonna lie, this was genuinely the best day we've had yet! Every week I think it's not gonna top the last and it does! This is the best day I've ever had! I'll say to my mates, what did YOU do this Wednesday?! NOTHING.”
Devon Fields, 19, Proud Places Young Ambassador
