On Tuesday 22 September, The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust held the 15th Annual Memorial Lecture at the Royal Institute of British Architects (RIBA).

Scott Brownrigg has supported The Stephen Lawrence Charitable Trust for the last five years. The charity was set up in 1998 as a national educational charity committed to the advancement of social justice as well as promoting architecture and the creative industries to young people, particularly from ethnic minorities. To date the Trust has awarded over 100 architectural and landscape bursaries.
Scott Brownrigg’s support for and involvement with the Trust includes: providing students with first-hand experience of life in its busy architectural studio via work placements and mentoring programmes; coaching on interview techniques and CV preparation and the annual exhibition.
The practice is committed to supporting the next generation of architects, and through the Trust has provided guidance, encouragement and employment to many bursary students.
