The Deposit Protection Service has donated another £19,000 to charity. A home and its grounds in Honiton, Devon run by charity SeeAbility are being refurbished following a £7,993 donation. A further £11,000 is being used to fund specialist support from YMCA DownsLink Group – Youth Advice Centre in Brighton and Hove.
Daren King, Head of Tenancy Deposit Protection at The DPS, said, “The Deposit Protection Service has given £200,000 to good causes since we established our charity fund in 2014.
“We believe that everyone has the right to live life to the full, and we were really excited to visit Devon to see how our donation is helping SeeAbility’s fantastic work.
“We’re also delighted to support YMCA DownsLink Group – Youth Advice Centre’s fantastic work in helping LGBT young people find a home in Brighton.”
The DPS’s fund assists charities that support the homeless and those who need help to live independently, and good causes across the UK have benefited from donations from The DPS and its sister organisations, the Letting Protection Service (LPS) Scotland and Northern Ireland, over the last three years.
