Who we are

Following our merger with Family Mosaic, the Peabody Group now provides homes and services to more than 111,000 residents and 8,000 care home services customers.

Peabody draws on over 150 years of history and expertise. Our new, bigger organisation has been inspired by the response to the 'Cathy Come Home' era of poor quality housing and poverty in Post-War Britain as well as George Peabody's vision of providing safe and affordable housing for the working poor of Victorian London.

Our mission

We want to help people make the most of their lives by providing good quality affordable homes, working with communities and promoting wellbeing.

Three things distinguish us:

  • We put the most vulnerable first
  • We create great places at scale where people want to live
  • We build resilience in people and communities.

We do this in the following ways:

  • We listen to, and know, our customers
  • We are reliably good
  • People want to work for, and with, us

Our employees have helped to define the values of the new organisation with each other and our residents and customers. We will be:

  • Ambitious
  • Caring
  • Collaborative
  • Empowering and
  • Trusted
