Key Worker Staff

Maintaining health sector staff providing quality services will help improve the health status of the people of the society. In order to retain such quality worker staff within the key areas, it is essential to offer them the best residence facilities. There arises the significance of key worker housing assistance councils and schemes that would help key workers find a quality residence near their workplaces.
The government is offering specially allocated funds to give affordable housing (residence facilities) and favorable policies for key workers so that they can offer their best service. Key workers (including teachers and health workers) play a critical role in upgrading the status of society by providing better frontline public services. The government listens to the housing requirements and aspirations of key workers and has introduced policies and programs based on their views. The newly implemented key worker policies are targeted and tailored to meet the demands arising in public services. The new policies will help key workers to have better homeownership at affordable renting rates. Government plans to fund affordable homes for key workers so that it becomes possible to retain more quality teachers in the main area itself. This would help the government to create a high-class education system in London. A higher value Homebuy scheme is also included in the key worker housing initiative, which is specially meant for potential teaching staff who can later contribute to the improvement of London’s education system (in the future). Additional funding is done for transitional Local Authority Social Housing Grant. The total funding for key worker housing came up to £1 billion in March 2006 (for the last three years). The Communities Plan came up with special arrangements for providing more housing&nbsp.capital resources. In order to provide timely and appropriate suggestions and allocations, Regional Housing Boards are introduced.
