In the community

Our Better Days programme supports our customers beyond their residential needs and helps thousands of people every year to find employment, improve their digital and money management skills and improve their overall wellbeing.

Last year we helped:

Every year we raise money across our offices for a charity chosen by our employees. Our nominated charity is Mind, the national mental health charity.

Every year, one in four of us will experience a mental health problem. But hundreds of thousands of people are still struggling. Mind listens and provides support and advice to help ensure that no-one has to face a mental health problem alone.

We have chosen Mind because the important work they do is closely aligned to the mental wellbeing support that we provide our customers through the Better Days programme.

Throughout the year we’ll be working with Mind on a number of fundraising initiatives, from dress down days to sporting events and cake sales.

Volunteering

Our employees are at the heart of our business, bringing our values to life through the service they provide and through the energy and passion that drives us to become an ever more responsible and sustainable business.

We encourage our people to get involved in volunteering activities that will benefit our customers and the communities in which they live. 

All Orbit employees are eligible to take up one day’s paid volunteering leave every year but many do much more. Last year our employee volunteering programme delivered a total of 27,000 hours of volunteering.
