There is plenty of information readily available on the internet explaining how it works.
Moneysupermarket have released a good guide for free for the general public. I'll pop the link below for you.
Or if you want, you can get in touch with me and I'll try my best to explain!

Hi, we bought through shared ownership.
First we had to register with 'First Steps' then once approved, we could buy through any of the housing associations. This website was useful : www.sharetobuy.com
Incidentally, if you are after a 2 bedroom flat, my wife and I are selling our flat in Romford if that is of interest to you. We have a 40% share for sale at £84K, I think all you need is a 10% deposit to get a mortgage.

I would start by looking on the internet first for the desired information your require, as this is a government initiative/scheme, they have subsequently set up a Help to Buy website to help giude those not in the know with all of the relevant information you will require, this website can be found here: http://www.helptobuy.org.uk/.
I would personally avoid 90%+ of the help to buy meetings available as they are usually set up to get the unknowing to invest in one of their overpriced usually off plan (not built yet) properties, a bit of a scam in my view!
If you are to go the route of purchasing a new build home utilising the scheme I would simply look for an established property developer, they will generally have a page of information as to how you can purchase one of their properties through the scheme, from small developers such as Elan Homes: http://www.elan-homes.co.uk/moving-made-easy/help-to-buy to the larger ones like CALA Homes: https://www.cala.co.uk/why-cala/cala-incentives/help-to-buy.
So if you now look on here (Zoopla), a search engine or any other property portal for new build homes, visit the property developers website you are interested in, take a look at the help to buy information on their website or pay them a visit to discuss your options with them. At least you won't be forced to buy something you do not want.
I hope this has been helpful!
