Key worker discount

As a thank you for giving back to our Communities, we’re offering you a discount on one of our beautiful brand-new homes.

Key workers – buy your new home for less!

Our Communities wouldn’t be what they are without your ongoing support. So, to say thank you, we’re giving every key worker who buys new with us a generous discount on the price of their new home. We’re giving back because you do!

Who qualifies?

The Key Worker Discount doesn’t depend on how much you earn or what your role is; to be eligible you simply have to work in one of the following sectors:
•    Education
•    Fire Service
•    Highways England
•    Local Authority
•    Ministry of Defence*
•    NHS
•    Police Force
•    Prison Service
•    Probation Service
•    Social Care
*Places for People is signed up to the Armed Forces Covenant , through which we’re committed to supporting the transition back into civilian life.

Buy your first home sooner


If you’re planning to purchase your first home, our Key Worker Discount could help you to move sooner than you thought. Because a discount on the price of your new home also means a discount on your deposit, which takes less time to save. Plus, your monthly mortgage repayments will be lower too.

Ease the cost of moving


Our Key Worker Discount is also available to existing homeowners, making it easier for you to upgrade to a bigger home or simply secure the house of your dreams. Your mortgage will be smaller than if you’d paid the full property price, freeing up extra cash each month to spend where it’s needed.

How it works


Our Key Worker Discount is available at participating developments. For details, contact the Sales Team at your chosen location. They can help you start the exciting journey to your brand-new home.
