Charity Property Matters


In 2012 the Foundation, with support from the Charity Commission, began an extensive piece of research looking at the key property issues charities are facing, with a view to identifying solutions and affecting change.

A suite of briefings based on the research, and the research report, can be downloaded below.

Briefing one: Summary of survey findings
Briefing two: Do charities get the right advice and support on property issues?
Briefing three: How can charities use property to support their mission?
Briefing four: How can charities use their property to survive in the current environment?
