“Saving Money on Your Premises Costs”. A workshop from the Ethical Property Foundation

The Ethical Property Foundation will be delivering a workshop in Grimsby on 30th January to support groups which have premises to understand how to better make use of them and potentially save money. The workshop will include many useful, practical tips and advice on ensuring a property is a boost, not a burden to an organisation.

For many small voluntary groups, managing premises is an extra on top of the day job. Yet managing a building can be a real headache: bad management can lead to high costs, unexpected problems and even risks to the very existence of the organisation.

Leading property advice charity the Ethical Property Foundation, in partnership with North Bank Forum, is offering a jargon-free, accessible introduction and an overview of the basics of managing a building.

You will learn how to:

  • Save money on your premises costs
  • Plan maintenance effectively
  • Build good management processes
  • Understand compliance
  • Understand key legal issues
  • Understand risk assessment
  • ‘Green’ your workplace

Plus many more useful, practical tips and advice on ensuring your property is a boost, not a burden to your organisation. Free sandwich lunch provided.
