Orbit Housings Thriving Communities Team is dedicated to offering all Orbit customers an opportunity to live a better life. As a team we have the ability to refer our customers into the Better days Offer https://www.orbitcustomerhub.org.uk/help-support/ this covers among other things wellbeing, budgeting and money advice, upskilling and support in seeking employment and digital inclusion.
Orbit was established in 1967 by two people on a park bench contemplating how to tackle homelessness. The passion they felt about the inequality in the access, scale and quality of available housing was channelled into positive action, and Orbit was created.
Over 50 years later, we're one of the leading housing providers in the UK. Our services have diversified, our housing portfolio has expanded, and our reputation as an innovator within our sector has grown. Our purpose today is every bit as important as it was when Orbit was founded.
But one thing has never changed. Our belief in people and what they can achieve.
As a not-for-profit housing association, we provide affordable, quality homes for our customers who are in differing stages of their life, from first-time buyers to enhanced support living.
We’re one of the UK’s largest housing associations, managing 46,000 homes and supporting over 100,000 customers.
We help people have and maintain a good quality, safe and affordable home for themselves and their families. We build new homes and regenerate neighbourhoods.
Our vision is to lead in building thriving communities, and we believe everyone is entitled to a good quality home that they can afford, in a place that they are proud to live. Being part of our communities is important to us.
