Working together to deliver thriving communities
Customer safety is paramount and is at the heart of this partnership
Every year, more than 6,000 people are killed due to unintentional injuries sustained in the home.
Working in partnership with Orbit Group, who are one of the UK’s leading housing groups, committed to the development of well-designed, high quality and affordable homes and communities that meet its own design and construction standards and exceeds government regulations.
Orbit Group is passionate about delivering thriving communities. Customer safety is paramount and at the heart of the organisation.
With a shared commitment to safer homes and communities, we’re proud of our strategic partnership with Orbit Group. By working together we influence change and achieve best practise.
Supporting the community and Brighter Beginnings
As part of the campaign, Keeping Kids Safe packs, were offered free of charge to all Orbit customers with children under the age of five. So far they have distributed packs to over 3,500 families and parents at the Parenting Project in Bishopton, Stratford. The packs include an easy-to-fit cupboard latch, a nursery thermometer, a falls prevention height chart and useful kitchen/bathroom resources including a flannel and weaning spoon, which all contain key safety advice.
At the Birmingham Gala Dinner, in June 2019, following their outstanding double gold award achievement, Orbit Group kindly donated £71,400 to our Brighter Beginnings appeal.
"RoSPA’s Brighter Beginnings campaign is very much in line with our Happy Healthy Starts campaign, which also provides tools to help families thrive and supports our communities and works to tackle child poverty."

Early Adopters of Safer by Design
At the launch of the Safer by Designs framework in November 2019, we were delighted to announce Orbit Group as the leading housing association partner. The framework has been embedded into Orbit's home policy and, through evidence-based recommended changes to home design, Orbit has pledged that all dwelling are to meet RoSPA Gold Standard, with the aspiration to achieve the Platinum Standard where possible.
"Safer by design is closely aligned to our own design standards, which ensure that safety is designed in and therefore our customers will be able to live more safely throughout their occupation. Orbit is extremely proud to be working with RoSPA standards that go above and beyond building regulations. This ensures that customer safety is at the heart of what we do."
