Facilities management is multi faceted and encompasses a vast array of topics. This resource library is an attempt to capture in one place documents, templates and links to information that will hopefully give you a good starting point. It is not meant as an all encompassing reference book. For this you may find it useful to look at the Community Hub Handbook by Local Trust, Power to Change and Locality and the Managing your Community Building by what was Community Matters.
