You can receive help to buy your own home through a Shared Ownership scheme.
Shared Ownership is where you buy a share of a property and rent the rest of it. This can sometimes be cheaper than renting from a private landlord. Shared Ownership does not mean you have to share your home with other people, unless you want to.
If you have a long-term disability, the HOLD scheme in England could help you buy a home for sale on a shared ownership basis.
More information about these affordable housing schemes is provided by the Government.
