A BUG HOTEL was the finishing touch to a regeneration project for Wheatley Housing Group turning wasteland into a community garden last year. Scotland's leading housing and care group, based in Glasgow, houses more than 200,000 people, improving their surroundings and lives. Wheatley has taken on 86 young people for two-year apprenticeships in the past year and staff recognise the mid-size not-for-profit organisation has a strong social conscience (a 78% positive score). Nearly half of the workforce of 2,507 people has notched up more than a decade with the group and employees feel they can make a valuable contribution to its success (82%). Carers' leave has been introduced, allowing staff extra time off when someone close needs their help. www.wheatley-group.com

My organisation encourages charitable activities

The Senior Management Team promote excellence, community, trust and ambition in everything they do. They empower and encourage staff to raise the bar for customers and deliver excellence through team meetings, speaking at Managers' forums and other staff events, as well as by talking informally to staff. When it comes to community, they regularly visit Wheatley's communities to engage with staff and residents, particularly when they hold events to celebrate improvements in neighbourhoods, such as the launch of new homes or a programme to upgrade existing homes. They are always ambitious to do more for their communities and they lead this activity both strategically and by encouraging staff to focus on designing and delivering excellent services for customers. The senior team have been instrumental in setting up the Wheatley Foundation, a new charitable trust which distributes grant funding to community, employability and digital inclusion projects. They also led on the successful campaign to attract £300m new funding on the public bond markets to enable the organisation to build thousands of new and affordable homes in their communities. Additionally Wheatley Group has developed a new environmental training programme – the Changing Lives programme - aimed at unemployed customers who are experiencing difficulty securing employment due to lack of work history, offending background, disability etc. The Wheatley Group Apprenticeship programme targets young people from communities who have been disadvantaged, are less likely to be engaged in schools and are furthest away from the job market. In 2016 they have taken on 86 split into business admin, housing, horticulture, sustainable resource management (environmental) and for the first time this year they have created care apprenticeships, as they see this as a growing opportunity for jobs.
