Glasgow’s biggest social housing landlord has been mobilising teams to get food and essentials delivered to tenants in need.

Wheatley Group, which includes GHA, has expanded its EatWell service to deliver more than 1600 parcels in the last two weeks.

Wheatley said it has plans to inject a further £350,000 into the service and to mobilise even more staff and vehicles to support the expansion of the service.

As well as food to last a family a week, for periods up to six weeks, the parcels which are delivered by EatWell staff and colleagues drafted in from other Wheatley services, also contain essential household items like toilet roll and washing-up liquid.

Lorraine McLaren, Wheatley Foundation director, said: “We’re doing all we can to support our most vulnerable customers during these very difficult times.

“EatWell is a lifeline service to people in financial hardship, who are ill or self isolating and feel they have no-one else to turn to for support.”
