New APPG for Housing and Employment officially launched
Last week, the new All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Housing and Employment was formally confirmed by the Office of the Parliamentary Commissioner for Standards.
Run jointly by GUAC and PlaceShaper, the new APPG aims to tackle employment needs of social tenants. GUAC hopes to promote a better policy environment that supports these residents seeking employment and recognises housing associations as key players in putting their residents into work.
Later in the year, the APPG will launch a new inquiry to understand the challenges that lie behind the subject. The inquiry will take evidence from a range of experts from housing providers to policy-makers.
Those holding formal positions on the group include Peter Aldous MP (Chair), Gareth Snell MP (Co-Chair) and Lord Best (Vice Chair).
The news on this APPG was mentioned in 24Housing, and shared across social media.
