Meeting: Charities Facilities Management Group structure

Charities F.M. Group members discussed future plans for the CFM Group.  Earlier this year, we surveyed all our members about what type of governance structure would be best to take the Group forward.  70% of our members voted to pursue charity status for the CFM Group.  

The meeting was designed to set out a plan of action for the next 12 months. The meeting agreed to set up a working group to explore the best way forward for the CFM Group.

The meeting was held at the Ethical Property Foundation.  The Foundation's Chief Executive, Antonia Swinson, presented an introduction to the organisation and its activites.  She also described the Ethical Property Foundation's 'Fairplace Award', an accreditation scheme which enables companies to put forward evidence of their commitment to people in their buildings, as well as  the community around the building.  

The award is made for individual workplaces; this can be part of a building, a single building or a number of buildings on a single site. The award is recognised via a certificate. The application fee costs £250. If the application is successful, an annual licence fee is payable for three years, based on the numbers of people working in the workplace.
