We're made up of a cast of thousands and we want you to be YOU

"We are committed to being a place where every person is accepted as equal, inspired to participate and empowered to succeed.

Belong at WG

Our young people come from all walks of life, diverse backgrounds and with different needs and we are proud that our workforce reflects that diversity.Our teams can engage, encourage and inspire our young people to be themselves.


We work as a team across our homes, schools and head office meaning we want you to feel like you belong no matter what. Made up of different backgrounds and experiences, we combine our knowledge to ensure we learn and develop to create an inclusive environment for our employees which reflects on to our young people. For them, being able to relate to staff members and have role models from similar backgrounds ensures they never feel alone.


We are proud to have become a committed member of Inclusive Employers. We hope to be a driving force of inclusion and diversity in the workplace and demonstrate every action we take to ensure we fulfil our goal. Inclusive Employers is the leading membership organisation for employers who are committed to prioritising inclusion and creating truly inclusive workplaces. In inclusive workplaces all employees are valued and contribute towards the success of their organisation.  

WG Celebrations

There is lots to celebrate here at WG! From awareness days and religious festivals to charity events and our own special awards, we acknowledge the diversity of celebrations and mark them equally. With access to e-cards to let someone know they have done a great job to our annual Star Awards, there are constant opportunities to give and receive. Your hard work will never go unnoticed and we are proud of every huge small victory.

Inclusive Employers

We are proud to have achieved the Bronze accreditation for Inclusive Employers and are now on a mission to reach Silver and ultimately Gold. We are committed to creating a safe and inclusive environment for all employees and our journey towards becoming a more inclusive workplace is ongoing and we are dedicated to making continuous progress.

"It’s really pleasing to see that the inclusivity work we’re already doing - such as neurodiversity eLearning, using workforce diversity data to inform our recruitment and retention policies and practices, and promoting diversity awareness events throughout the year - has been recognised with this award. Partnering with Inclusive Employers not only means we can access a considerable range of resources to support our focus on equality, diversity and inclusion, but – through the accreditation process – help us identify areas where we can continually improve." Joanne Sibson, Associate Director - HR
