Equality, diversity and inclusion
Our customers come from all walks of life. But one thing is always the same – everyone is valued and gets fair treatment.
Wheatley Homes Glasgow is committed to the principles of equality, diversity and inclusion (EDI) which is at the heart of the common values shared across Wheatley Group.
For us, this means:
- equality - people with different characteristics are treated fairly and have access to equal opportunities
- diversity - respecting and valuing individual differences and unique characteristics, both in our organisation and in our communities
- inclusion - making sure our employees and customers feel comfortable being themselves and that they feel valued, respected and heard.
We don’t discriminate against anyone on the grounds of race, ethnic or national origin, language, religion, belief, age, gender, sex, sexual orientation, marital status, family circumstances, employment status, physical ability or mental health, or any other protected characteristic. We aim to achieve fair outcomes for all, threading an EDI approach through our decision-making and service design and delivery.
For more information on our approach to EDI, including how we do this, our statement of commitment, equality data collection and some recent EDI achievements, visit the Wheatley Group website here.
We held our first ever equality and diversity survey in 2022, which provided us with valuable insights into the make up of our staff and customers.
From this information we have created an EDI calendar, available to download below.
The calendar includes key religious, cultural and awareness dates throughout the year that we know are celebrated or acknowledged by our staff and customers, as well as information about our Different Together EDI campaign.
We want to make sure that everyone can understand the information we send to them in letters, leaflets, newsletters and policies. You can get a copy of most of our documents in different languages, large print, in Braille and audio formats.

Hate crime and Third Party Reporting
