Thank you to all those that joined us on our Member Day, 27th January
Over 25 GUAC members came together last week for our latest members’ day, to hear the latest news and updates from across the housing and employment sectors.
Department of Work and Pensions (DWP) officials outlined their roadmap and plans for supporting more people with disabilities into work, and how their work will develop over the coming months. Their session allowed members the opportunity to feed into the current Green Paper on the issue, which is currently accepting submissions (more details of how to submit a response directly, below).
Commenting afterwards, Ian Simpson, GUAC chair said "Housing organisations have a vital part to play in developing and improving employment policy. These types of sessions with the DWP provide our members with real access and influence, to better shape the work of the department. Thanks to all those who got involved”
Members also heard the latest news from the Work and Health Programme, and an update on where some GUAC members now are in their plans for contracting and delivery.
