Meeting: Charities Facilities Management Group structure

Meeting: Charities Facilities Management Group structure

Date: September 17, 2015

Our next meeting will review the outcomes of the member survey on future plans for the Group.

The Charities FM Group has some 300 member organisations, but it is run on a voluntary basis with almost no resources. This event will look at the options for the future structure of the Group. 

We recently surveyed all our members about what type of governance structure would be best to take the Group forward. Charities FM Group - meeting logo

The result: 70% of our members voted to pursue charity status for the CFM Group.  

The meeting is designed to set out a plan of action for the next 12 months. 

The Ethical Property Foundation's Chief Executive, Antonia Swinson, will also present an introduction to the organisation and its activites.  

Swinson will discuss 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.
