CHARITIES & ASSOCIATIONS
AVS in the Local Community
All of our AVS branches have an annual budget to support local charitable projects. If you have a charitable request please contact your local branch, or alternatively email email@example.com
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.
Through their youth advice centres, community and school counselling services, family mediation and other youth focussed services, they also provide additional support to 10,000 children, young people and families each year.
We will be working with YMCA Downslink to provide new work opportunities for at risk young people throughout 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.
