Our process for giving support
We offer help in three ways
1) Professional expertise, this can be architects, quantity surveyors, project managers and specialist engineers. The earlier you involve us the more we are likely to be able to contribute. For example if you want to run your vision by one of our Project Advisors they can help you to identify what you will need to consider, and what you should prioritise so you can draw up your brief for your architect, contractor or funders.
2) Building materials free of charge from our list of Patron or supporting suppliers
3) Cash Grants but we are by no means the largest funder of building projects.
