Feeling the Pulse in 2017: tell us what you want, need, and think!

In the new year, we’ll be surveying members, experts and industry stakeholders through a short ‘feeling the pulse’ survey, to understand and review GUAC and sector priorities for the coming year.

With the changes brought on by political change, continued economic challenges and upheavals within the sector, the year ahead is likely to continue to challenge housing organisations.

We want to understand how these changes are affecting your priorities, as you continue to plan, deliver or be involved in employment support.

Our 2017 pulse survey will be emailed to all members, select industry experts and stakeholders early in the new year. The results of the pulse survey will provide us with better insight into housing and employment support for the sector, as well as a better understanding of how GUAC can support you in the year ahead.

Look out for the survey in your inbox in the coming weeks.
