BPCA Joins British Cleaning Council

In July BPCA became the latest member of the British Cleaning Council (BCC), a federation of over 20 associations dedicated to raising the profile of the industry and helping it gain the credibility it deserves. BCC coordinates the affairs of the industry and promotes and encourages improvements in health, hygiene and general cleanliness standards.

The Council supports the Cleaning Show and provides funding for initiatives that can raise the profile of the cleaning industry.

BPCA President Martin Harvey said "the BPCA Board could see clear strategic benefits to becoming involved with BCC. Our members carry out cleaning such as guano removal and hoarder clearances, and our best bet for a successful treatment is to get the cleaning staff on side. Therefore, any ways we can influence this vital market will be of benefit to the association and its members."

Simon Forrester, who was interviewed and gave a presentation at the recent BCC Council meeting before BPCA's acceptance to the Council, said "I was very pleased for BPCA to be accepted. We have already made contact with several BCC member associations about forging stronger working links, and we have booked a BPCA stand at The Cleaning Show." If you are a BPCA Member interested in exhibiting at the show please get in touch with Lauren Day lauren@bpca.org.uk to discuss a discounted presence.
