Big Assist, the NCVO / Big Lottery Fund support programme for infrastructure organisations, has recently launched a Sponsored Visits and Mentoring Programme. With the view that ‘one of the best ways to learn is from others who have done or are doing what you would like to do’, the scheme supports infrastructure organisations to visit or mentor one another.
The Ethical Property Foundation is a registered Big Assist provider. Infrastructure organisations can apply for funding for consultancy and training on property issues from our expert advisers.

Ethical Property Foundation Director Jo Taylor said ‘Funding from sources like the Big Assist is key to enabling infrastructure organisations to ensure property is a boost not a burden’.
The Foundation has supported over 2,500 charities to successfully rent, buy, let and manage property. We often informally match charities to share learning or experience. Contact Elena Sandford-Hawken on 020 7065 0760 if you would like help finding a fellow infrastructure organisation to visit, or provide mentoring support.
