Affordable housing

As a teacher in a Wandsworth school, you may be eligible to take part in one of many key worker housing initiatives.

All key public sector workers can be supported to get onto the property ladder or to rent property at below market values.

Wandsworth works with a number of housing partners to offer schemes that the majority of our teachers are eligible for.
