Wheatley Foundation bursaries
 

We're offering lifeline support to tenants and their families to pursue their dreams of going to university.

Our bursary programme by the Wheatley Foundation is open for applications again this year. Successful applicants will receive a grant of up to £1500 to help them cover the costs of higher and further education.

The grants are a great chance for tenants, or someone in their household, to gain qualifications, increase their skills and help them land their dream job.

The bursaries are available to people living in our homes for social rent (GHA, Cube, West Lothian Housing Partnership, Dunedin Canmore, Barony and Loretto Housing). People who live in a home factored by YourPlace are also eligible to apply.

You can download the application form here.

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library
 

Dolly Parton’s Imagination Library (DPIL) is a book-gifting charity for young children aged 0-5. The Wheatley Foundation has partnered up with the Imagination Library to provide free monthly books to children living in our socially rented homes. Once your child is registered, they will receive a free book each month that is personally addressed to them. The Royal National Institute of Blind People assists in the conversion of select titles to braille and audio books for children in the UK who are blind or partially sighted.

To register your child/children, please speak to your housing officer.
