do some good - The 2020 pandemic

Finalist for EG’s Superhero award

The initiative: A DSG taskforce was set up to actively connect offers of support within the Real Estate industry (space, supplies, manpower and property) to those in need including the homeless, domestic abuse charities, LGBTQ+ community, the army and key workers.

How we helped: acted as a logistical call centre for inbound and outbound leads, directing requests to CBRE’s request centre and other relevant organisations such as Under the Doormat.

Funds raised: £7k+

#seemenow – Pride 2020

deverellsmith promoted the visibility of LGBTQ+ property professionals through the #seemenow challenge on Linkedin, whilst raising money for akt charity.

We encouraged participants to speak out on why visibility is important to them through a selfie with a home-made sign, as simple as a post-it note or A4 piece of paper.
