We have put together a Toolkit containing information and resources to help you to set up your own Maintenance Co-operative.
If you need specific advice on dealing with the different concerns and challenges that maintaining buildings can pose then take a look at our Technical Advice page.
Maintenance Plan templates (HB22)
We have provided a template to help structure your Maintenance Plan. There are 2 versions: a shorter version over 2 pages and a longer version with an A4 sheet for each element of the Place of Worship. Both can be edited/adapted to suit your building.
Before starting your baseline survey, if you are not already familiar with the words used to describe architectural features you might find a glossary useful. Here is a short glossary to download, alternatively visit www.lookingatbuildings.org.uk.
