GUAC’s ‘Proving Value’ research: We need your experience and information

GUAC have commissioned the University of Salford to investigate and measure the impact of employment support interventions taking place amongst the GUAC membership, to measure and ‘prove the value’ of this work.

We need your reports, evidence, information, data analysis – anything around your employment interventions, to help support this study.  Your information will be held in confidence by the University of Salford, unless you give permission for it to be shared or quoted.

We would like to welcome any evidence you are aware of relating to:

  • Examples of initiatives to improve the employment and life chance outcomes of residents
  • Details of measures currently being used to measure employment support among housing associations
  • Views on the strengths and limitations of these measures

If you would like to support the study, please email responses to Katy Jones  via by Friday 11 August.

As part of this research, a detailed member survey will be forthcoming over the summer  – watch this space!
