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.
Parr was exclusively 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 employs over 1.6 million people.
Parr is joined on the APPG by a handful of other industry experts, including representatives from the BCC.
She commented: “I’m honoured to have been invited to support the work of the APPG. 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.”
