The Professional Network

We know that support from the professionals is crucial to making our vision both practical and achievable. So, we have developed a growing network of partners who are committed to our principles of design and community consultation. They consult and advise on projects across the world.

Occasionally we refer work that we do not have the capacity to take on to the consultants and practices on our network. This is why we ask that, if you do choose to join us, you submit a portfolio or CV for us to review your suitability for this work and to ensure the network shares our principles. In return you will be provided with a professional member logo that affiliates you with the Prince's Foundation.

Benefits of becoming a member include:

Referrals and Consultancy

As an enrolled member you are eligible for our referral scheme. Organisations that approach us for recommendations are provided with shortlists of approved network members or enrolled practices. We also often call upon network members to help on our consultancy projects.

Use of Your Professional Network Member logo

You would be entitled to use our bespoke logo to show that you are part of the network. This is a recognition of your affiliation with us and our shared ethos. We allow the use of this logo on websites and email footers. Other uses can be discussed.

Access to Knowledge and Forums for Discussion

We encourage our network members to interact with each other as well as us. We arrange events and invite you to conferences to enable you to engage with other professionals who share your interests. All of our events and seminars have specific themes and we welcome your ideas for future event topics. We also invite you to use the library at our offices in London and give you access to any research we have been involved in. 

Access to Extra Publicity

A section of our website is dedicated to an interactive directory which provides information about our network members and gives you an opportunity to showcase your work. We are also happy to publish your updates through our Facebook and Twitter media streams.

Contributing to Research and Events

We engage with our network to assist with research which is relevant to their field and often invite network members to speak at our events. This enables you to have increased exposure in the industry. 

Accessing our Hallmark

We are working on several hallmarking initiatives. As a professional member you will already have an accelerated assessment path for these. We will also be calling to our network to assist with the work generated by this. Please contact us for more information.

Other general benefits

You will receive our quarterly magazine which you may occasionally be asked to contribute to. We also invite professional members to our general member events and tours. Examples of past tours include visits to Prince Charles’s garden at Highgrove and new developments at London St. Pancras station. We try to organise events to suit a variety of interests.
