Measuring Wellbeing by using HACT

GUAC members have set up a sub-committee to draw together their experiences of using the HACT social impact toolkit. GUAC members representing a wide range of social landlords meet prior to our bi-monthly meeting.

Our meetings have proved very helpful for colleagues finding what is working and how the methodology is being received across our respective organisations.
