The Ethical Property Foundation was established in 2004 by our sister organisation the Ethical Property Company, to promote a shared vision that buildings should be run for the benefit of people and planet.
Property Advice - Free at the point of access
The Foundation launched its Property Advice Service for non-profits in 2005.
Launched initially in London, the Property Advice Service expanded into Bristol in early 2007 and launched its nation-wide service in 2012.
In February 2015 it became preferred supplier of land and property advice to the Charity Commission.
To date the Foundation has supported 3000+ organisations.
Advice is free at the point of access with high value support from 75+ senior property professionals on a pro bono/discounted fee basis.
The Foundation also offers a high value consultancy service to larger non-profit clients.
Every 2 years the Foundation publishes its Charity Property Matters Survey in partnership with the Charity Commission - the only UK research centred on the property concerns of non-profit organisations.
Advocating an ethical approach to property management.
In addition to providing property advice to charitable organisations the Foundation developed a new ethical workplace accreditation the fairplace Award (www.fairplaceaward.com
) launched at its 10th anniversary in Autumn 2014.
