As a local charity, our links with other charities mean that we know there is an appetite for meeting space that is ethically sound, safe and reasonably priced. For example, we have hosted meetings for Touchstone, a mental health charity. Such facilities are a potential source of income, but more importantly they position us as a cooperative organisation and broaden our appeal.
We also host teachers from all over the world. Providing accommodation in a centre for them would be preferable to hosting them in hotels or out in the suburbs as guests of centre volunteers. Having a room or two that we could let would also be a potential source of income.
