Give us a Chance in the leading sector publication
GUAC aims to tackle employment issues facing the sector and our residents, and we’ve been working hard to secure the support of parliamentarians. We’ve recently led the launch of the new all All-Party Parliamentary Group for Housing and Employment.
Working with PlaceShapers, GUAC launched the APPG in October, with support from a cross section of MPs across the House of Commons. The creation of this important APPG was an excellent news to the sector as a whole, and our story was highlighted in the leading trade press, 24housing. GUAC’s managing director, Lynsey Sweeney’s quotation was featured as she said “I am delighted to reach this milestone and support the formal launch of the new Housing and Employment APPG.
“Through this new group, GUAC, will continue to raise awareness of the work that housing associations do to help social housing tenants and their communities into work, and raise the voice of social housing tenants who are seeking work and in work progression.”
