A LOCAL builder is supporting those working in the education sector by launching a new incentive designed to boost their efforts to buy a new home.

Barratt Homes Yorkshire West, which has its Saxon Dene development in Silsden, is offering a deposit contribution of up to £15,000 off the price of a new home for anyone who works at a nursery, school, college or university.

The Education Workers scheme, which is being piloted in Yorkshire, allows buyers to receive a deposit contribution of £750 for every £25,000 spent, up to a maximum contribution of £15,000.

The discount is designed to help everyone working in the education sector get onto the property ladder or secure a brand new home, as a thank-you for their hard work over the past 18 months.
