Selectronic - Helen & Douglas House Donation

As one of the global leader in optoelectronics, Selectronic recognise the need to take a lead in the global issues of sustainability, environmental responsibly and human rights. We believe in conducting business in an ethical approach, and fully support the UN Global Compact as a platform that encompasses the core principles in areas of human rights, labour, environment and anti-corruption. With this philosophy in mind, we hope to build a future together where imagination is the only limit. And to seize the opportunity to make a real difference today, we have committed to all ten of the key global company aims confirmed within the UN Global Compact.

As part of this commitment, we’re dedicated to supporting two charities – the exceptionally compassionate Helen & Douglas House and the community led youth charity BASE 33. The Helen & Douglas House started in 1982 as the world’s first children’s hospice, joining forces with Douglas house in 2004, designed specifically for the care of young adults aged 16-35. Since then, the charity has touched the lives of numerous families. Some of these stories can been heard on the Radiothon, as part of a collaboration with JACK FM.

At Selectronic, we recognise the importance of the amazing work that the Helen & Douglas house does, and we want to see it continue. Our input of £825 will pay for a Care Team member for 6 days.  The Care Team look after patients’ medical needs but also make sure that they have fun, relax and socialise while they are at the hospice, allowing children and young adults to have independence and dignity, and make new friends.

As a global leader in optoelectronics, our belief in a customer-oriented service has been the driving force behind the expansion of our business over 30 years in the electronic market sector. Time and again during this time we have proven our commitment to customers. We want to show the same commitment to Helen & Douglas House to continue supporting them in the great work that they do.
