Our next Fundraiser

The Acre Foundation, run by our team, exists to raise funds for causes close to our hearts. Find out about the positive impact it's made on people, communities and the environment.

Every year we undertake a challenge in support of a range charities. In 2016 we conquered Mount Toubkal in Morocco and in 2017 we tackled the formidable Freedom Trail across the Pyrenees from France into Spain.

We also seem to be going bigger and better, so watch the space and look out for the next Acre charity fundraising challenge in 2018!


Raised in 2017/2018

For every placement Acre completes we like to give a little more by making a donation to one of our chosen charities on our client’s behalf. If you are a client who has had an individual placed by Acre, please choose from one of the three options below and send your selection to

Cool Earth is a unique charity that is saving the world’s most endangered rainforests through working with local communities to secure forests at risk of being destroyed within the next 18 months.

Your donation will support the Zoological Society of London to raise the profile and initiate conservation of the world’s most Evolutionarily Distinct and Globally Endangered (EDGE) species.

The Octavia Foundation’s work is intended to increase the strength and effectiveness of community life; improving local conditions, especially for people in disadvantaged situations

We are signatories of the UN global Compact

The world's largest corporate sustainability initiative; aligning strategies and operations with universal principles on human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption.

Other causes we support

For the past 3 years we have supported GOSH, but this year I challenged my colleagues to chose a different route, with one premise – that we would support causes only which were very personal to Acre employees, ‘charity begins at home as they say!
