Key Worker

Key Workers' Scheme

This scheme offers a £1,000 contribution towards your Orbit home and is designed to support key workers to move up or take that first step on to the property ladder.

Your place to unwind

Orbit Homes is choosing to give back to the heroes who have been working relentlessly, to keep everything moving during the coronavirus pandemic. Our Key Workers' Scheme is a way to say a massive ‘thank you’ to those who go to work every day, even with a risk to their health and wellbeing. This scheme offers a £1,000 contribution towards your Orbit home and is designed to support house-hunters moving up or getting onto the property ladder. The contribution can be used to help you with the expense of setting up home, either with some important essentials or special furniture you have always wanted for your brand-new Orbit home.
