We are a not-for-profit providing sustainable living advice specifically for those living in rental property. Renters are a growing part of the community and we believe their involvement is vital and possible. As the only organisation specifically for renters we deliver workshops, host events and run projects, this website is full of tips, tutorials, product reviews and inspiring stories. We use CiviCRm for managing contacts and our relations with them, event registrations, memberships, donations, mailing lists, surveys, competitions and much more!
