Corporate community supports RREF student mental health appeal
Thank you to our community of supporters!

We are thrilled to have received such a fantastic level of backing from our community for the appeal we launched in March to support the continuation of a scheme for a dedicated student welfare professional as a local resource within the Real Estate & Planning Department at Henley Business School.

To date we have raised £9,270, nearly halfway to our £20,000 appeal target, which would ensure the delivery of the next two years of this important resource.

This scheme delivers one-to-one sessions for those students in greater need, as well as a programme of activities to increase students’ resilience, including webinars on topics such as professional readiness.

We are delighted that members of the corporate real estate community­­ are boosting the efforts of individual supporters and are committing to the appeal. Carter Jonas, Eastdil Secured, Grosvenor and Lambert Smith Hampton have each pledged £1,000, contributing to securing the continuation of this dedicated service in the Real Estate & Planning Department.

Hear from our supporters here:

“RREF’s programme to support Real Estate & Planning students improves their mental health and will have far reaching benefits to the students and their future as Real Estate professionals.  Eastdil Secured is proud to be part of this important campaign.” 
Ian Marcus OBE, Senior Advisor, Eastdil Secured

“We are delighted to support the Reading Real Estate Foundation with their student mental health programme.  Offering guidance to young people, particularly in the wake of the pandemic, is so important. Being able to access the help they need, when they need it, is crucial to their wellbeing and future success.”
Sarah Turner Anne Sloper, Co-Heads of Organisational Effectiveness for Grosvenor Britain and Ireland

Your donation, no matter how small, will contribute to ensure that every student who needs help can get the advice they need from a professional counsellor, whether in a group or with one-to-one consultations.

If you would like to support the continuation of this service, please head to our donate page or read up on the appeal here.
