Our dedication to bringing comfort into people’s lives doesn’t stop at sofas. As an established British business with stores all over the UK, we have an incredible opportunity to give something back to the people who live and work where we do. Through our partnership with BBC Children in Need and our charity initiative, ‘Giving Back’, we can do just that.
Our customers and colleagues at DFS are busy raising money for this incredible charity. Over the next 3 years, the money we raise will help to provide one-to-one support and specialist counselling to 7,500 children and young people across the UK with mental health issues.
Since we frst started supporting The Duke of Edinburgh’s Award (DofE) – the world’s leading youth achievement awards - over 25 years ago, we’re proud to have contributed an amazing £2.1 million. The funds have gone towards helping young people gain essential skills, experience, confdence and resilience to successfully navigate adult life, regardless of their background.
Through ‘Giving Back’ we’ve made three simple commitments to help make a difference in our local communities: to raise and donate up to 1% of our profit before tax to charitable causes, to give all our colleagues one paid volunteering day per year and to give away up to 1% of our products a year to charities and organisations.
