Key Worker homes

What is a Key Worker?

Key Workers are those who work in certain public sector jobs such as teachers, police, NHS staff, firefighters etc. who may be eligible for discounted rented accommodation. The rents are approximately 80% of market rent values. If you work in the public sector and are looking for accommodation please check with the landlord that you meet any locally set definition of a key worker.

Please note that you do not have to be on Elmbridge or Spelthorne Borough Council's Housing Register to be considered for any of the schemes offered by PA Housing or A2Dominion Group.

What else do I need to know?

Throughout any Keyworker tenancy you (or at least one of you if you are joint tenants) must remain in employment as a keyworker. You must tell your landlord within 7 days if you leave that employment. You will need to provide full written details of any new employment and your landlord will confirm if you are still eligible.
