A big thank you
Thank you to all those who attended our AGM and annual reception last week.
It’s your support that allows Give us a Chance to be the strongest voice for employment support in the social housing sector, and it’s because of you that we have an impact nationally.
Our AGM saw the GUAC board of directors elected to their roles, and set out the direction for GUAC in the year ahead.
The evening’s annual reception, sponsored by Seetec and held in the House of Commons, acted as a great reminder and celebration of the work that our members do.
With over 120 guests and stakeholders from across the sector, the evening provided an inspiring backdrop - with a rally of speeches from Love London Working, Manchester Athena/One Manchester, the Learning and Work Institute, our event sponsors Seetec and our parliamentary sponsor, Peter Aldous MP.
Our keynote speaker Jim McMahon MP, newly appointed Shadow Minister for Communities, Local Government and Devolution summed it up perfectly when he said “never forget that just one act of kindness, of encouragement towards someone in their life, can make a lasting difference, and can change lives”.
