If you are a 'selected public sector worker', sometimes called a 'key worker' and you do not have a social housing tenancy and / or do not live within a reasonable distance of your workplace, the Council may give you additional housing priority.
You may be considered for additional housing priority as a key worker if you are employed full or part time on a permanent contract (ie not agency staff) within Tower Hamlets as one of the following:
- ambulance staff who is also a paramedic
- a fully qualified nurse working in one of the borough's NHS hospitals
- a fire fighter or police officer stationed in the borough
- a teacher working in one of the borough's Local Education Authority (LEA) maintained schools.
This scheme is only available to key workers who require a 3 bed property of less.
If you would like more information about this scheme, please contact the Tower Hamlets Letting Team on 020 7364 5000.
