Charlotte Parr, director of cleaning services provider Churchill Group, is joining the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for the UK cleaning and hygiene industry.
The APPG was inaugurated in February to promote the importance of cleaning and hygiene in the UK.
The APPG aims to raise public interest issues surrounding the sector. This includes the impact of immigration rules, the importance of committing 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.
Parr was asked to support the APPG by the British Cleaning Council (BCC), and her involvement makes Harpenden-based Churchill Group a key voice for the industry – a sector that is worth over £54 billion a year to the economy and which employs more than 1.6 million people. She will work alongside several other industry experts, including representatives from the BCC.
Parr said: “The importance of our industry and the dedication from our cleaning and 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.”
