Background for the partnership
Heimstaden has a genuine passion for real estate and people. Their success rests on a very simple notion – happy people are good for business. Building a better society, where people thrive and live in harmony, is something they contribute to every day and have done for 23 years. With their strong values and customer centered mindset, they enrich and simplify life for over 250 000 people through Friendly Homes, every day showing that they are a landlord with a conscience. Now, they are taking their social contribution to the next level through A Home for a Home partnership, that will make a huge difference for children and families all over the world.
- A Home for a Home is a partnership between Heimstaden and SOS Children’s Villages, the largest of its kind for both organizations.
- The agreement is made between Heimstaden and SOS Norway. The partnership also involves the local SOS Children’s Villages member associations in several countries in Europe. SOS Children’s Villages in Sweden, Denmark, Iceland, Netherlands, Czech Republic and Norway is a part in this cooperation.
- Heimstaden will contribute 100 EUR for every home that they own, with over 110 000 homes across Europe, SOS Children’s Villages will receive over 11 million EUR annually. The amount will increase parallelly to the growth of Heimstaden’s real estate portfolio.
- SOS Children’s Villages will allocate most funds to existing projects, where support is most urgently needed, both in terms of upscaling existing projects and establishing new ones. Additionally, the partnership entails local projects in each country they are present.
