        GUAC recruits
        With a recent departure from the Board, we are looking for a candidate from among our membership to join the GUAC Board.  If you are passionate about housing and employment, and want to help shape the future direction of the sector, we’d like to hear from you.

        With a departing board member from Wales, we would particularly welcome candidates from Wales to get in touch. However, all interested members are encouraged to get in touch to discuss the opportunity with Lynsey Sweeney via Lynsey@giveusachance.co.uk
        Expressions of interest should be made by Monday 13 August.
