Give us a Chance becomes Communities that Work

Today (17 September 2019), national membership body Give us a Chance (GUAC) has officially rebranded as Communities that Work, in a move to reflect its evolution and growth.

Over the past year, the social housing membership body has grown in influence and size – leading the sector and championing greater recognition for the work that housing organisations do to help residents and communities access training and long term, rewarding employment.

Communities that Work’s Lynsey Sweeney, managing director commented: “Our new brand marks an exciting time in our organisation’s history as we continue to grow the profile of housing organisations who help people and communities access rewarding employment.

“Over the past few years, Give us a Chance has played an important role in building recognition for the important work that housing organisations do, and how their employment support transforms lives and communities.

“Under our new brand and identity, Communities that Work, we will continue to position ourselves alongside housing associations and sector bodies, with a renewed focus on providing evidence led solutions that break down housing and employment challenges.”
