Why are we different?

Orwell is an independent not-for-profit organisation which allows us to invest the money we make back into our services, and take a more creative approach to how we deliver our care and support, always with a focus on our customers. 

We're taking a different approach to attracting the right people to our organisation. 

We know there are many naturally caring and compassionate people looking for a great opportunity, and we think we have it.
