Premises and Equipment

Unless your group is very small and operates from the homes of individuals, you will have some sort of premises, however basic. You are also likely to have furniture and equipment, and possibly vehicles and stock. The sourcing, security and maintenance of these is your responsibility. You should at all times make the best use of limited resources, so consider sharing premises/equipment with others, actively seeking donated or borrowed goods from the corporate sector, ensuring you use properly qualified contractors, adopting an environmental policy, and so on.

Make sure you have an assets register listing details of all your capital assets and dates of purchase and disposal

Also make sure you have an assets register listing details of all your capital assets and dates of purchase and disposal. You must, of course, abide by all relevant laws in relation to premises and equipment, including licensing, planning, building regulations and road safety laws.
