SHARING YOUR CHARITY'S PROPERTY - HOW TO DO IT

SHARING YOUR CHARITY'S PROPERTY - HOW TO DO IT

Wednesday 10 October 2018

16:45 – 19:00

Russell-Cooke, 2 Putney Hill, London, SW15 6AB

Charities seldom have huge amounts of spare cash and it makes sense to use what assets they have to the best possible advantage. Property assets, whether owned or leased, are no exception. This seminar will focus on letting or licensing your spare space or property - how to go about it and what things to consider.

Catherine Evans, Clare Garbett and James McCallum in Russell-Cooke charity and social business team will discuss:

  • rent, rent reviews and VAT on rent
  • service charges and repairing obligations
  • staying there and getting out: the lease term, break clauses, underletting, assignments and surrenders
  • using the property for your purposes: permitted use and planning law, sharing with others and carrying out alternations to the property

LONDON'S VOLUNTARY SECTOR: PICKING UP THE PIECES

LONDON'S VOLUNTARY SECTOR: PICKING UP THE PIECES

Wednesday 17 October

8:30am - 10:30am

Toynbee Hall, The Community Centre, 52 Old Castle St, London E1 7AJ

Report Launch with Deputy Mayor for Social Integration, Social Mobility and Community Engagement, Matthew Ryder QC.

As our society invests less and less in the mechanisms that prevent families from being pulled into the current of poverty, many are turning to London's voluntary and community sector - organisations with a wealth of experience, compassion and expertise - to help them keep their heads above water. 
 
Through the 'Picking Up The Pieces' research, 4in10 have gathered together the voices and expertise of those on the frontline of London's child poverty crisis to develop an understanding of how civil responding to it and the challenges the sector faces in doing so.
