Thank you for the question. Sadly, the answer is probably not, you are not permitted to use the shame to fund a buy to let property (even though this was not the original intention). However, if you contact the scheme there may be other options such as buying out the equity in the home which would allow you to then rent it out, obviously this will depend on the your financial position.
