Octavia Foundation

If Acre has recently placed an individual with your organisation and you have received an e-mail inviting you to take up our ‘Ecoscheme’ initiative, please fill in the form above and we’ll donate to Octavia on your behalf.

The work of the Octavia Foundation is broad and far-reaching and includes befriending services and lunch clubs for vulnerable adults and older people, youth-led media and arts programmes, sports and healthy eating initiatives and employment and training projects.

Acre Resources have been a significant partner of the Octavia Foundation throughout 2011 and have a key role in ‘Gateways to Work’, the Octavia Foundation’s primary employment and training programme.

‘Gateways to Work’ is a flexible, responsive and relationship-focused service for residents and students in Kensington and Chelsea, Westminster, Brent and Hammersmith and Fulham that works to support people into relevant training, employment, volunteering or apprenticeship positions. Acre Resources provide mentoring services and CV and interview advice to participants and have successfully brokered volunteering and employment opportunities with local organisations and employers.

  • ZSL’s Edge of Existence Programme

    Elephants, rhinos and pandas may be the poster boys of conservation but many equally unique and threatened species are in danger of slipping unnoticed towards extinction. 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.
