YMCA Downslink Group

We're proud to be working with YMCA Downslink Group, a local charity that works to prevent youth homelessness across Sussex and Surrey. Every night, they provide accommodation to more than 750 young people who are homeless or at risk of homelessness.

 

We are working with YMCA Downslink to provide a phased pathway to employment and potentially full-time jobs to disadvantaged young people in Sussex and Surrey.

Supporting our NHS Heroes

In 2020 AVS awarded a £500 voucher from each of our branches to an NHS hero that had been nominated by the local community, in order to make over their garden.

Forest Stewardship Council - FSC®

Here at AVS Fencing & Landscaping Supplies we are very proud to be FSC® certified (FSC C120422). This means that all of our timber products are sourced from FSC certified forests which are inspected by independent, FSC accredited organisations, and then certified against strict standards.

 

Forests must be managed in an environmentally appropriate, economically viable, and socially beneficial manner in order to become FSC certified. Only timber that comes from forests meeting these strict standards can carry the FSC label.

 

A chain of custody tracks the timber through every stage in the supply chain and is monitored through the invoicing process. The product receives a final label with a code to confirm that the item is genuinely FSC.
