Directions to listing
Haig Housing provides homes to ex-Service people and/or their dependants.
The object of Haig Housing is to provide housing assistance to ex-Service people and/or their dependants. Currently this object is achieved by letting general needs homes at affordable rents to the ex-Service community and providing tailored housing solutions to suit specific and individual needs of severely wounded and disabled Servicve and ex-Service people. Haig Housing also offers a wide range of housing advice to the Service community and is the Strategic Housing Partner of Help for Heroes.
To be considered for housing, applicants must have a British Armed Forces connection and be in housing need. Applicants for the Trust's Shared Ownership Scheme and the Special Needs Housing are considered on a case by case basis.
The Trust has over 1,300 properties throughout the UK which are a mix of family-sized houses, flats, maisonettes and bungalows; built mostly in the 1930’s, 1950’s and 1990’s. Some are subject to the nomination rights of the original service or regimental organisation which donated the funds for the building. The properties in Jersey are subject to residential qualification for the States of Jersey. The properties are generally on small well managed estates ranging in size from about six houses up to the largest estate in Morden of over 270 homes and are located in 47 different local authorities. The properties are mainly for rental only unless they are under the Shared Ownership Scheme.Haig Housing does not have any sheltered, residential or nursing homes. The majority of homes are suitable for families and only a small number of properties are suitable for a single occupancy at Bristol, Haslemere (Hampshire), Morden and Woolwich (London). Some properties are suitable for the frail, elderly and people with disabilities.
Applicants for housing by the Trust are normally assessed using a points system which combines Service Points and Need Points. Allocation of accommodation priority is normally given to those with greatest need except where this would lead to unsustainable tenancies, inappropriate use of the housing stock or unstable communities.
