Realise the vision for the next generation

At Selectronic, we believe that behind success there’s vision, and our vision is to seize the opportunity, discover the potential, realise the vision, and finally bring it to life. We make it our mission to provide the solutions that will take your concept into real life, and we will remove any limitations to this process to produce optimal results. However, we also understand that not everyone is given the best start in life in order to achieve their own vision.

BASE 33 is a community led youth charity based in Witney, West Oxfordshire. They provide a great deal of support to an average of 150 young people aged 13-25 each week who are experiencing challenges due to difficult family circumstances, drug or alcohol misuse, homelessness, and involvement in crime and risky behaviour. At Selectronic, we fully support the work that BASE 33 are doing and feel it is vital that these young people receive the help that they require so that they too can discover their potential. In order for them to continue doing this excellent work, we have made a second donation to their charity of £775.00.

Prime Minister, David Cameron comments, ‘Base33 plays an important role in the community and offers hope and support to young people who have lost their way.’

As the only centre in West Oxfordshire that provides a specialist service for vulnerable young people, they rely on support. For them to maintain the activities they’re providing, they need to raise £150,000 a year. Visit base33.org.uk for more information on how you can offer your support through donations, fundraising, volunteering, or simply through spreading the word via their Facebook page at facebook.com/base33friends.

As part of our philosophy, we see the need to take a lead in a range of global issues, which is why we fully support the UN Global Compact that encompasses the core principles in areas of human rights, labour, environment, and anti-corruption. We want to seize the opportunity and help BASE 33 achieve better outcomes for vulnerable young people. And you can too.
