The group and its subsidiaries – Encon Insulation and Nevill Long – have become an official partner of the charity which is experiencing a steady increase in applications for assistance from people who have had their working lives cut short due to illness.

The Rainy Day Trust supports people who have worked in the UK’s home improvement and enhancement industry

An estimated one million current and past employees from the home improvement and enhancement industries are currently eligible for help.

The Rainy Day Trust is the only charity which exists solely to help people who have worked in the UK’s home improvement and enhancement industry, including builders’ merchants, DIY shops and hardware stores, in addition to manufacturers, distributors and retailers.

Run by a board of trustees comprising suppliers, retailers, wholesalers, trade associations and the trade press, the charity is already supported by many associations and organisations.

Encon Group HR director Deborah Gore said: “We feel grateful that we are in a position where we can give people in our industry a helping hand when they need it most.”
