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 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.

My Great Start
Scottish Social Security Minister Jeane Freeman joined us to find out more about My Great Start - an early intervention programme which provides help to vulnerable tenants so they feel comfortable and settled in their home from the day they move in.
Advisors support people with everything from benefits advice and budgeting skills to help getting online, accessing health care and integrating into their community.

Employment and Training Minister Jamie Hepburn helped launch our new pre-employability scheme, Wheatley Works.
The ground-breaking programme will help tenants of Wheatley’s six housing associations to get “work ready” for the employment and training opportunities being created by the Group and its contractors.
Over 1200 jobs, apprenticeships and training opportunities have been created since 2015 and now - through its charitable organisation Wheatley Foundation – it plans to create a further 1300 over the next two years.
