It found that more charities now rent rather than own the properties they operate out of (31%) and 41% say that no one is specifically responsible for the property within their organisation. When it comes to securing funding to pay for property costs 32% said they had found this more difficult than other fundraising, and 26% believe they will likely have this challenge in the future. For 23% of those polled, paying for property amounts to over 20% of the organisation's total annual spend and 27% have fallen foul of unexpected costs linked to property. Over a third of respondents (36%) feel that property, represents a 'high' or 'very high' risk to their organisation and 66% do not have a strategic property plan in place ' a figure that is up 14 percentage points since 2016 when it was at 56%. The survey also found 44% did not regularly report back to charity trustees about property and 39% do not carry out regular risk assessments on properties within their organisations. http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/30percent-of-charities-say-property-is-a-barrier-to-charitable-objectives-04270 http://www.djsresearch.co.uk/blog/article/30percent-of-charities-say-property-is-a-barrier-to-charitable-objectives-04270
