As a resident in an Orbit home I feel it’s vital to be part of my community and have an active interest in the future of my home and therefore Orbit. Keeping up to date is easily done through Orbit’s website so I was therefore delighted at the opportunity to help decide the future of the website.
I was invited by Orbit to help choose the developers who will be taking over this task. Firstly, this involved a selection process of residents who had a good knowledge of computers so enabling us to have a practical insight. From there we were tasked with testing example websites from each developer and rating them accordingly. Our recommendations are then used to help Orbit decide which one to create a working partnership with for the future of Orbit’s Website.
This whole experience gives me personal satisfaction that I know my Landlord, Orbit, has an active interest in my opinion as well as a practical role within a commercial environment. I know there are always opportunities for residents to be involved with Orbit and if like me you feel its important then I suggest you contact your local Resident Involvement Team and see how you can help.
