We’re offering Doctors, nurses and other emergency service workers rent-free accommodation as a thank you for their efforts in fighting the Covid-19 pandemic.

We have been liaising with hospital trusts to let medics know about the offer of two rent-free months at apartments across the country. The offer is open to doctors, nurses, paramedics, ambulance crew, support staff and others.  In Sutton Coldfield, more than a dozen apartments are available at Knight’s House, our new development of 63 luxury apartments, which is a short walk from Good Hope Hospital.  In Leicester, homes developed in partnership with Index Properties are available at the Equinox building at Burleys Way, near the city centre.  Apartments at all properties in the company’s national portfolio are included in the offer, where there is availability. The first two-months will be rent free for those that qualify for the offer.  Our CEO, Nick Sellman, said: “We’ve all been so impressed with the care, commitment, and bravery shown by everyone involved with the NHS, from nurses and doctors and all the way through to cleaners and administration staff.  

Without their fantastic efforts this terrible disease would be claiming even more lives than it already is. As a nation, we need to do all we can to support the people putting their own lives on the line to save others.”  

As a business, we felt we needed to show our appreciation which is why we’re offering NHS staff and other emergency workers a two-month rent-free period, which we hope will give them a boost at a time when they need all the support we can give them.  

He added:

We’re currently in discussions with the University Hospitals Birmingham NHS Foundation Trust about the possibility of supplying accommodation at Knight’s House to the NHS as part of our efforts to assist with the national emergency effort.
