New Give us a Chance board

Give us a Chance is moving towards becoming a not-for-profit incorporated Company.

The future directors elected Ian Simpson from Guinness as the new Chair who will take over from Kate Shone of Forum Housing.

Ian said of his new role, “I fee extremely privileged to lead the consortium and would like to thank Kate Shone for her outstanding contribution to GUAC. Kate was the first Chair and helped to establish GUAC as a leading light in developing partnerships between the Housing and Employment sectors.”

Ian Simpson went on to comment that he was delighted that Kate would stay on as a Director ensuring her experience remained an asset to GUAC in its next phase of development.

GUAC’s new board will be made up of 10 directors who work for GUAC’s member organisations, representing housing associations across the country.
