About Wheatley Group

We’re part of Wheatley Group – Scotland’s leading housing, care and property-management group. Wheatley provides homes and services to over 210,000 people in 19 local authority areas across central Scotland.

More about Wheatley Group

Wheatley Group is named after John Wheatley, the Glasgow MP who became known as the father of social housing.

All parts of the Group are firmly rooted in their local communities. However, by joining forces, our partner organisations are delivering much more for their customers than they could on their own. 

And, by using our combined size and scale, we are contributing to improving housing, care and regeneration at a national level.

The value of Wheatley

Being part of Wheatley Group means we can provide extra value to communities and the people we work for.

We have extensive experience of working with housing providers and understand the importance of people feeling safe in their homes and the types of support they might need to stay in their home and be part of their community.

The Wheatley Pledge incentivises Wheatley’s contractors and suppliers to do more for communities by creating jobs and training places for local people or by carrying out voluntary projects.

The people we work for are able to benefit from these opportunities.

We can also access a range of wraparound services that Wheatley provides including environmental services, furniture packages and the EatWell initiative.

Sharing resource and expertise as part of Wheatley also allows us to be much more innovative than we could be on our own.

Our unique W.E. Care approach was developed in partnership with the people we work for and colleagues from across Wheatley.

This model places individuals as leaders in their care delivery and uses a range of innovative products to support individuals.

These include volunteering, technology-enabled care and creating personalised adaptations to individuals homes.
