To say thank you to all Isle of Wight-based NHS employees working hard to look after people during the COVID-19 crisis, Barratt and David Wilson Homes Southampton division has launched a new NHS Deposit Contribution Scheme giving a 5% deposit to help them buy a new home.

The new scheme is a way of offering a heartfelt thank you to the country’s 1.5million NHS workers who will now be able to receive up to £15,000 towards buying any new Barratt or David Wilson home.

The NHS Deposit Contribution scheme launched on Saturday 23rd May and will run until the end of December 2020. This new scheme follows a similar contribution scheme available for the country’s Armed Forces launched by Barratt last month.

Barratt has recently re-opened its sales offices and showhomes across Hampshire, following the government’s announcement that housing market transactions in England can take place again. Sites re-opening include Hawthorn Meadows in Whippingham and St George’s Gate in Newport.

Barratt has been working hard throughout the coronavirus crisis to support the NHS. It donated £100,000 to NHS Charities Together and a further £50,000 to The Sun’s Who Cares Wins campaign, providing help for frontline NHS staff. It donated more than 5,000 medical-grade facemasks to hospitals across the country and gave its entire stock of 400 defibrillators to St John Ambulance in England and Wales and St Andrew’s First Aid in Scotland.

Tammy Bishop, Sales Director at Barratt Southampton, said:

“We want to say a big thank you to our brilliant NHS workers who have shown such courage in the face of the COVID-19 crisis. This is why we are announcing this new NHS deposit contribution scheme to thank them for all they have done.”

Barratt Homes has also signed up to the new government and industry Charter for Safe Working Practice – Covid-19, which supports best practice being adopted across the industry.
