Selco York helps to freshen up charity’s city offices

August 29th, 2023
Selco York gives paint to local charity

Our York branch has delivered hundreds of pounds worth of paint to a local charity that supports individuals affected by domestic abuse so it can brighten up its city centre offices.

The team at the branch on Osbaldwick Link Road made the donation to IDAS (Independent Domestic Abuse Service) as part of Selco’s commitment to supporting our local communities.

IDAS, a trailblazing and award-winning charity that supports thousands of adults and hundreds of children and young people in South and North Yorkshire every year, urgently needed to refresh its York offices, from where staff support individuals in need.

When the team contacted Selco for help, we had no hesitation in making the donation.

Vicky Anderson, York and Selby local area manager at IDAS, said: “Our York offices are looking a little run down so we really want to brighten it up to make it look more inviting for those individuals who come to our offices when they need our support.

“As a local charity that uses its funds to help vulnerable people wanting to escape domestic or sexual abuse, we have no budget for decorating and are so grateful for Selco for its generous donation. A new lick of paint will make all the difference to how the office looks and feels.”

Selco York branch manager Aaron Matthews said: “It’s important for us to work closely with the communities we are based in and we know what brilliant work IDAS does across North and South Yorkshire.

“We are more than happy to support the charity as it looks to brighten up its York offices.”

IDAS, which recently won a new contract to provide emergency accommodation for people escaping abuse in Sheffield, provides advice and support to thousands of victims and survivors of domestic abuse and sexual violence every year.

Last year, it provided intensive support and accommodation to more than 250 families and individuals and it also developed training courses for professionals, including domestic abuse and rape awareness training courses, which were completed by more than 5,000 people in the last 12 months.

More than 2,000 professionals, students and volunteers also completed its more advanced accredited training sessions.
