GUAC host Secretary of State for Work and Pensions
In late September Give us a Chance met with Secretary of State for Work and Pensions, Rt Hon Damian Green MP, to showcase the work of our members, and to highlight the important role that housing organisations play in helping their tenants into employment.
At the meeting, GUAC lead Lynsey Boother, took the opportunity to inform Mr Green of the key priorities for housing organisations when it comes to employment support, and shared the GUAC / ERSA joint plan for improving employment support provision.
The visit, which included GUAC member Yarlington Housing Group, showcased a leading employment initiative, “Inspired to Achieve” (i2A), which has helped over 200 Yarlington HG residents into employment over the past 12 months.
