We’re supporting our customers to enter further and higher education with clear pathways into employment.


Find out more about some of the projects the Wheatley Foundation supports to help our customers lead their lives to the full.

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 eligibile to apply.

There are 50 bursaries on offer across Wheatley Group and they are available for up to two years. Applications are assessed so that bursaries are awarded to customers who are most in need.

The support is for people studying HNC, HND, Undergraduate Degree or Post-Graduate Courses (less than SCQF level 11).

Applications are open until 30 June 2018. To apply please complete the application form and email it to

You should also read our privacy notice before applying.

Customers who received a bursary last year from us don’t need to re-apply using this application form. We’ll get in touch with them separately.

Volunteer plus

Volunteer plus supports our customers who are not yet ready for work to improve skills and confidence through volunteer placements.

Interested customers should contact their housing officer for more details.
