We undertake a variety of activities for facilities managers in the voluntary sector, including surveys, networking meetings and professional development meetings featuring a range of speakers. Our Charities FM Group meetings give members an opportunity to meet other charity staff who deal with property and f.m. issues and to exchange news and information with colleagues. 

This page provides a preview of our events and other activities.  

Presentations and other materials from our meetings will be made available under our "resources" section, provided we are given permission from guest speakers.
