We set up the Chancerygate Foundation to help break down these barriers. We believe nobody should be prevented from accessing and thriving in the property industry just because they didn’t go to the right school or their parents didn’t have the right connections.

Changing the face of the industry is more important now than it’s ever been. But it requires more than lofty campaigns or glossy annual reports. Through the Chancerygate Foundation, we’re putting our money, knowledge and decades of experience together to bring amazing opportunities to students — especially those from disadvantaged African and Caribbean heritage backgrounds. From mentorship to awards, bursaries and work experience, we’re helping the UK’s most deserving young people have an unbeatable introduction to the real estate industry — and all the support they need to turn it into a career.

We're not doing
it alone

Our network of trustees & supporters help us open up even more opportunities to students aged 18–25 across the UK. Join them today.
