My role

I lead our property and development work in the health and social care sector.

My experience

I have worked for not-for-profit organisations (health and social care, charity and faith) for over a decade on property matters, and I have a strong understanding of the challenges they face. I specialise in strategic and transactional advice for the directors and boards on property matters including major development projects.


Alongside my work, I have also published articles and given seminars on the development opportunities for not-for-profit providers.

 

My specialisms

  • Social care property
  • Faith organisations property
  • Charity property
  • Social business property

“Our charity has to have offices in central London…doesn't it?”

Aside from the obvious limitations of asking only 1,000 people and the phrasing of the questions, are they right? Or is there a broader learning point about office costs wherever a charity is based? The Guardian then took this one step further querying in an article if in fact charities should be based in London at all.

The Commission have their sights set on charities that have entered into business rates arrangements that exploit tax legislation artificially and serve to benefit private interests, with charities benefiting as a by-product rather than a principal aim.
