This years’ ambassador, broadcaster and director Reggie Yates, is a fantastic champion for Shared Ownership Week 2018. His television career began aged eight, which meant he could purchase his first home at just 18 years old. Very aware of the fortunate position this put him in and voicing his support for the event, Reggie comments; “I’ve chosen to support Shared Ownership Week because I realise the importance of having your own home. I have younger siblings who aren’t as lucky and I’m very aware of the predicament they’re in. So, if I can help bring some awareness to Shared Ownership, I’m really happy to.”
Keen to highlight the scheme’s benefits and how it could enable potential buyers to wave goodbye to shared bathrooms and washing up disputes, Reggie also said; “Shared Ownership makes taking a step onto the property ladder possible for so many. If you’re thinking of taking the plunge and becoming a home owner, but you don’t have the help of the bank of Mum and Dad, then the support and information that this event offers is incredibly important.”
