Having delivered record results in 2017, global property giant CBRE is well placed to give something back, so Metropolis was pleased to learn of a new two-year partnership with the charity Action for Children.

CBRE’s staff chose the charity, which focuses on helping young people entering and leaving the care system as well as supporting foster families, in a UK-wide staff vote.

As part of the new partnership, CBRE aims to raise more than £500,000 over the next two years to add to its opening £250,000 donation, which will help Action for Children provide specialist support to 700 children and young people in care.

CBRE’s UK managing director Ciaran Bird said the firm was “looking forward to kicking off our programme with the inspirational charity” and Metropolis wishes it the best of luck in those efforts.
