Global Home Warranties has donated €1 for every house registered with it in Ireland 2019/2020 to local charity, COPE Galway, raising a total of €3,620.
Global Home Warranties is an Irish structural warranty company which provides insurance against structural latent defects in houses and commercial buildings. Structural defect insurance protects homeowners for 10 years against defects in the design, workmanship, material or the components of the property.
James Reynolds, business development executive, says the company chose COPE as its charity partner because of its vision for improved quality of life across all of its services.
“Our company takes social responsibility, one of our core values, very seriously and we work with local charities across all regions to help improve lives of our citizens”.
Global Home Warranties partners with housing bodies and county councils across Ireland for social and affordable houses, as well as private developers.
“We understand the need to provide housing for the vulnerable members of our society. We strive to ensure each home is safe, secure and comfortable for those who buy or rent them.”
COPE Galway's motto is "A Home of your Own” for people affected by homelessness, women and children experiencing domestic abuse, and older people.
