Who we are
Wheatley is one of the UK’s most dynamic, agile and best-performing large housing, care and property-management groups.
The UK’s largest builder of social rented homes, it is also one of the country’s best accredited organisations. By way of example, the Group’s largest subsidiary, Glasgow Housing Association (GHA), was named by the European Foundation of Quality Management as one of only three winners (from its 30,000 strong membership) of the 2017 Global Excellence Award – and both Investors in People’s UK’s Platinum Employer and Apprentice Employer of the year.
Wheatley was also named in 2018 as the Best Development Team at the prestigious Inside Housing Awards.
However, there is much more to Wheatley. It is also one of Scotland’s leading care providers and largest property management businesses, and offers an award-winning range of wraparound services aimed at “Making Homes and Lives Better” for over 200,000 customers across 19 local authority areas in Scotland.
Over the past decade Wheatley’s Registered Social Landlords have created no fewer than 11,000 jobs and 2000 training places as they seek, with partners, to break the cycle of poverty and exclusion that many of its customers still experience.
Wheatley’s partner organisations remain firmly rooted in their local communities, whilst drawing on the strength, size, scale and resources of the Group to contribute on a regional and national level to affordable housing, care and community regeneration across Scotland.
Recently, DGHP - which manages more than 10,000 homes across Dumfries and Galloway - has joined Wheatley Group. DGHP tenants and communities will start to see the benefits of the new partnership in 2020.
