Introducing the first judges for our social media competition

We are pleased to confirm Mark Lawrence and Chloe Fletcher as the first two judges for our Communities that Work social media competition.

Chloe is policy director of the National Federation of ALMOs (NFA). She has worked in the social housing sector for over 20 years, starting in housing management. In 2000 she moved into housing policy and worked on affordable housing and housing finance policy on behalf of the London boroughs, initially for London Housing Unit and prior to joining the National Federation of ALMOs (NFA) in 2007, as Head of Affordable Housing and Investment at London Councils.

She is currently leading the NFA’s work on Universal Credit and the Social Housing Green Paper highlighting issues that affect ALMOs and their tenants.

Mark is the editor of 24housing magazine and has been working in the sector since 2015. Before that, he worked for various publications, looking at community-led initiatives to combatting extremism in the UK. He is passionate about ending discrimination and promoting equality across the sector.

The GUAC Communities that Work social media competition looks for stories about how social housing tenants have been helped into work, or progressed in work, with the support of the social housing sector.
