Churchill Group's Charlotte Parr signs on to support APPG for UK Cleaning & Hygiene Industry
Churchill Group, one of the largest independently owned soft service providers in the UK, has announced that Charotte Parr is working to support the work of the recently formed All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for the UK cleaning & hygiene industry.
The APPG exists to promote the importance of cleaning and hygiene to everyone in the UK, a cause about which Charlotte is both knowledgable and passionate.
The APPG aims to raise public interest issues surrounding the sector. This includes the impact of immigration rules, the importance of commiting to the real living wage, and recognising operatives within the sector as key workers. The APPG was inaugurated in February of this year and includes 70 MPs and three Members of the House of Lords, making it one of the larger APPGs.
Charlotte was invited to join the APPG by the British Cleaning Council (BCC), and her involvement makes Churchill a key voice for the cleaning industry - a sector annually worth over £54 billion to the economy and one that employs more than 1.6 million people. Charlotte is joined on the APPG by a handful of other industry experts, including representatives from the BCC.
"I'm honoured to have been invited to support the work of the APPG," says Charlotte, a director at Churchill. "The importance of our industry and the dedication from our cleaning & hygiene operatives must be properly recognised. I look forward to advocating on their behalf and helping the industry receive the support and recognition it merits."
Established over 40 years ago, Churchill boasts some 1,000 clients in all sectors throughout the UK, including Meadowhall Shopping Centre, Northern Powergrid, Gazprom, The Royal College of Art, GTR, Network Rail, JLL, Investec, Port of Dover, Royal Veterinary College and Capital City Group College.
