Welcome to IKEA
In this context, we strive to be in constant contact with the local society, the people, local authorities, institutions, organizations, non-governmental organizations etc., in the countries we operate in and continuously be informed about the people’s most prominent needs in order to be able to understand them and contribute, to the best of our abilities, to their satisfaction.

Some of IKEA's major Social Responsibility projects are presented below:


Since 2017 IKEA has been implementing the Social Responsibility program "STATHMOI HARAS" and through this initiative IKEA supports local community nurseries throughout Cyprus by creating functional spaces where children can spend beautiful and creative moments.

Each community nursery is equipped based on the needs of the children, and always in collaboration with the teachers of the nurseries and the municipal authorities. For the successful completion of the project "STATHMOI HARAS" IKEA employees worked as volunteers.
At IKEA and the FOURLIS Group we believe that children are the most important people in the world and therefore we will never stop trying to ensure a better everyday life for them.

In December 2017, IKEA launched the ‘Stathmoi Haras’ programme by presenting the refurbished classroom of the Ayios Stylianos Municipal Nursery School in Lakatamia. In accordance with the children’s needs, the team created areas for music, mathematics, language, puppet theatre, books and fairytales, painting and nature, where 22 children, aged 3 to 6, can spend quality time in a beautiful and warm environment that inspires them.

Furnishing of building of the Association for the Prevention and Handling of the Violence in the Family (SPAVO)

In 2016, IKEA undertook the furnishing, equipment and decoration of the new building of the Association for the Prevention and Handling of the Violence in the Family (SPAVO), which is located in Kirineias Avenue in Aglantzia. The IKEA communication and interior design team, as well as a team of IKEA volunteers, worked on the furnishing and decoration of all rooms, which will be used from people accommodated at SPAVO premises. Additionally, offices and conference rooms were set up for SPAVO staff. The aim was to create a functional and stylish space, as well as a pleasant and friendly environment to support families which will be hosted, thus contributing to improving the quality of life of victims of domestic violence. LCC Logistics and CATY Ltd, our co-operating transport and assembly companies, contributed to the project by providing their services free of charge.
SPAVO is a non-profit, non-governmental organization founded 26 years ago to provide services to prevent violence, to support and protect the individual, so that through personal development and improvement of interpersonal relationships, will help to build a more humane society. This is achieved by providing programs of treatment, support, protection, information and education by qualified scientific personnel, with the co-operation of volunteers and the assistance of private and government bodies.
