  1. Key worker

    A key worker is a public sector employee who is considered to provide an essential service. The term is often used in the United Kingdom in the context of those essential workers who may find it difficult to buy property in the area where they work. In particular, it has become more prominent as escalating house prices result in a gap between household income and the cost of housing. Many local authorities and other public sector bodies face major problems recruiting and retaining their workers in terms of housing. The response to these concerns has been the development of initiatives designed to house key workers, including low-cost loans and shared ownership schemes. Those defined as key workers generally include: ⁕Clinical National Health Service staff ⁕Teachers and nursery nurses ⁕Police officers, Community Support Officers and some civilian police staff ⁕Prison officers and some other Prison staff ⁕Probation Service staff
