Answer for First Steps

Answered By: 
The Mayor

There are currently 65,854 active registrants on the First Steps portal website (individuals who have accessed their account within the past 12 months).

In 2014/15 over 5,000 Affordable Home Ownership (AHO) homes funded by the Mayor were completed.  All AHO homes are advertised through the First Steps website operated by Share to Buy. Additional homes developed without Mayoral funding plus resales of existing AHO homes are also advertised through the website.
