To say thank you for all those serving with the Armed Forces one of the UK’s largest housebuilders Barratt Homes announces a new Armed Forces Contribution scheme, aimed at assisting Armed Forces personnel get onto the ladder. The new scheme is open to UK Armed Forces personnel who are currently employed by the Army, Navy or RAF, or who have left in the past 12 months.
The scheme is available from the 8th May which marked the 75th anniversary of VE day, when World War 2 ended in Europe. To commemorate this day a 5% deposit contribution will be given to any new Barratt or David Wilson Homes to help personnel on their home buying journey.
Barratt Homes is a proud supporter of the Armed Forces and has employed over 70 veterans into its business through its Armed Forces Transition Programme over the last 18 months, accounting for 90% of all trainees recruited in that period. It also has a long standing partnership with Royal British Legion Industries (RBLI), supporting the charity providing employment, support, housing and care to the British Armed Forces community.
David Thomas, Chief Executive of Barratt Developments, said: “We have chosen to mark VE Day with a special thank you to all those serving in the Armed Forces. As a proud Armed Forces employer and long-standing supporter of the RBLI, we take our commitment to the Armed Forces very seriously and we look forward to helping them even more through this new scheme.”
