i2a attend the Give Us A Chance (GUAC) annual conference at the House of Commons.

Debra Scarratt Head of i2a, recently visited the House of Commons to attend the annual conference of Give us a Chance (GUAC) which is a consortium of social landlords who are rising to the challenge of helping people into work and which 'Inspired to Achieve' are part of.

The event was hosted by Peter Aldous MP who championed the great work that Housing organisations do in helping people into work.

In addition Margaret Greenwood MP delivered a speech stating ‘almost half of social housing tenants are out of work’ and specifically mentioned the great work Yarlington Housing Group does in addressing this.

Whilst at the event, Rebecca Pow MP for Taunton Deane met with Debra and heard how Taunton Deane Borough Council commission i2a to deliver employment support to their residents and explained the contracts in place. Rebecca was very interested and asked to be kept informed of events that we do in the future.

Earlier this year Inspired to Achieve (i2a) were selected to represent GUAC member Yarlington Housing Group and showcase their leading employment initiative which is delivered by i2a.

The visit to the awards is just one of the many ways in which Housing Associations are influencing the current government, and making the case for the critical role that housing organisations play in supporting people into employment.
