Welcome

Welcome to the ‘Give us a Chance’ website. As a group of social housing providers across England, we have joined forces to create a consortium to build influence on behalf of our members. By working together, developing new ideas and influencing national policy we aim to put social housing providers at the heart of the employment and skills agenda. The website provides information about GUAC’S latest activities at a political level as well as details about how we assist our members develop effective partnerships with the Welfare to Work industry. We also highlight some of the fantastic work our members are undertaking on alongside customers to improve their skills and employment opportunities. If you would like your organisation to get involved, learn about new initiatives and help us in our aim to shape employment and skills policy then please get in touch. Ian Simpson Chair,
