Members’ toolkit launching

GUAC have been visiting members up and down the country, and seeing first hand some of the great work that members are doing to help their residents and communities into work.

Whether its Radian’s community café and work experience programme, or the job support and accredited apprenticeship programme provided by Tai Calon, we’ve seen the variety of work taking place that helps get people into work.

With the upcoming elections and the new government teams that the elections will create, together with the uncertainty over future domestic policy post Brexit, we know that the time is now to be ensuring that the GUAC, our members, and our sector are communicating to influence.

We’ve seen first-hand how the work that you do transforms lives and communities. And we know from our visits that many of our members want support to show the good work that they’re doing, to help engage with local stakeholders.

To help you do this, GUAC have developed a members’ Stakeholder Toolkit, to give the support you need to communicate and engage with your local stakeholders.

Members will be able to access the new Stakeholder Toolkit via the GUAC website, through a secure area of the website.

Watch out for our launch of it this week, which will include details on how to access the secure ares of the website.
