Coming Home Campaign
Coming Home is Haig Housing's charity fundraising campaign to raise money to provide specially adapted and appropriate housing for the hundreds of Service personnel in need of rebuilding their lives following traumatic life changing injuries.
Coming Home has the full support of Bryn Parry, the founder of Help for Heroes. Bryn said: ‘Our task is to fix up these brave young men and women so that they are capable of leading the rest of their lives. That’s where Coming Home comes in, by providing them somewhere appropriate and decent to live.”
Coming Home takes over where Help for Heroes finishes
Haig Housing is one of two strategic partners of Help for Heroes (the other being Combat Stress) and any housing needs and cases found by them are referred to us as the specialists in housing for Service and ex-Service people. Specially adapted homes cost £150,000 to £300,000, depending on location. Property is an expensive business - please support us by making a donation now.
Many badly injured ex-Servicemen have already been provided with a home for life through Haig Housing Trust and the Coming Home campaign. Read their stories and see how your donation will make a huge contribution to people’s lives. A home appropriate and suitable for their needs, provides a platform for badly injured Servicemen and women from which to rebuild their lives.
Haig Housing's Fundraising Codes of Practice
Haig Housing Trust (which includes its Coming Home fundraising campaign) is a member of the Institute of Fundraising and The Fundraising Standard Board and, as such, follows their Codes of Practice which represent the standards currently set for fundraisers in the UK. Haig reports annually to the IoF.
Following the Etherington Review of Fundraising Self-regulation, a new self-regulator will take over responsibility for regulating charity fundraising from the existing self-regulatory bodies. It will have a strong relationship with statutory regulators, a significant set of sanctions and ownership of the code of fundraising practice.
