What Peabody does

We're one of London's oldest and largest housing providers, also delivering an extensive range of community programmes. Learn more about what we do.

We have over 150 years of history, experience and expertise. Our purpose is inspired by two great social movements:

  • George Peabody‚Äôs vision of providing safe and affordable housing for the working poor of Victorian London, and
  • Grassroots community action in response to the 'Cathy Come Home era' of poor quality housing in post-war Britain led by organisations like Family Mosaic.

The merger of Peabody and Family Mosaic has given rise to a new group with a more influential voice. Peabody's Group Strategy, 2018-21 summarises what the new combined organisation plans to do and achieve over the next three years. The strategy is supported by a Delivery Plan, which will be updated each year, as well as a suite of Key Performance Indicators and an outline

Update June 2018: We are now part of the GLA's London Development Panel which is open to a wide range of public sector bodies who wish to bring land they own forward for housing-led development.
