Orbit was established in 1967 by a small but pioneering group of business people who wanted to make sure everyone could live in a good quality, affordable home. The passion they felt was channelled into positive action, and Orbit was created.
Our purpose today is every bit as important as it was when we were founded. We provide landlord services to over 45,000 properties and build around 1,500 quality new homes each year. Our aim is to ensure the homes we provide and the communities we create are high quality, affordable, safe and sustainable and really become your place to thrive.
In everything we do, we are committed to improving the long-term prospects of society. We do this through taking steps to protect our planet, investing in a range of projects to support communities, families and individuals, and ensuring we have in place sustainable working and excellent employment practices.
