Place Standard Guide
The Place Standard tool is simple and easy to use and there is a range of guidance, resources and additional materials which will guide you to plan and carry out your assessment. Read on to find out what is available.
Place Standard Guidance
The Place Standard Guidance will help you plan, organise and carry out an assessment using the Place Standard tool. It is for individuals who are new to the Place Standard as well as those familiar with the tool.
The Quick Guide (Section 1) provides an introduction to the Place Standard tool, an overview of its main stages, and some key principles to think about while carrying out your assessment. These are then explained in more detail in the rest of the guide.
Place Standard Learning Resource
A really useful learning resource created by Public Health Scotland. Designed to enable users to understand and practically apply the Place Standard tool in a variety of contexts, it includes helpful tools and templates.
This resource will be useful to any group looking to undertake a Place Standard assessment. It has primarily been designed with community and third sector groups and organisations in mind but is applicable to any setting.
An updated version will be available here soon. In the meantime you can continue to access the original Learning Resource through the link below where you'll be prompted to login or create an account in order to use the Learning Resource.
More on the Place Standard tool
There are also additional versions of the Place Standard tool and further supporting resources available to supplement the main tool. For instance, to support children and young people participating in conversations about their places. Or the Design Version, a complementary addition to inform the emerging design or development of a place.
