We are part of a consortium of six housing associations collectively called e² (pronounced ‘e squared’).
The consortium comprises Saffron Housing Trust, Orwell Housing Association, Havebury Housing Partnership, Freebridge Community Housing Trust, Greenfields Community Housing and Colchester Borough Homes (which is an arm’s length management organisation of Colchester Borough Council).
e² works jointly with other associations across East Anglia with the aim of building strong and sustainable communities by providing high quality affordable homes together with well-designed local community facilities. Orwell provides development services for these organisations, with Orwell securing grant funding from the Homes & Communities Agency both for itself and its partners.
Additionally, the organisations jointly purchase and deliver training of mutual interest to staff, board members/non-executive directors and tenants and are moving to a wider joint procurement strategy as well as formal arrangements to share information.
