For private companies, there are sponsorship opportunities through specific initiatives and programmes, offering brand exposure, business networking and professional development as well as innovative ways to connect with issues impacting your company.

Donations by individuals and charitable trusts help to support the development of our education programmes and public events and activities, which together offer the wider community and especially young people opportunities to learn more about their built environment.

Our volunteer programme
is one of the largest and most respected of its kind and core to our working philosophy. We also offer internships year-round for those seeking to gain a greater awareness of career opportunities in our sector.
