Barnsbury Housing Association is committed to keeping Barnsbury affordable and see key worker housing as a way to ensure that it remains affordable for people working in key roles in the community.
There are occasional vacancies for key worker housing, which are let on Assured Shorthold Tenancies (for a fixed term) at affordable rents. These are open to people who work in the public sector, with priority given to sectors facing recruitment difficulties because of the short supply of affordable housing.
Key workers must demonstrate proof of employment and also proof of income and this will be monitored throughout the tenancy.
If you are interested in finding out more information on our key worker housing, please contact our Specialist Housing Officer, Graham Vine.
