GGF supports National Home Improvement Forum

  • 1 Jul 2020

The Glass and Glazing Federation (GGF) is fully supportive of the new home improvement forum set up recently by The National Home Improvement Council (NHIC). 

The NHIC Strategic Forum will bring together many of the major organisations representing the home improvement sector, to discuss the vital issues affecting the sector, as the industry moves out of lockdown during the COVID-19 pandemic. 

As well as trade associations representing home improvement companies, there will also be representation from Local Authority Building Control and companies within the sector.

The GGF, as the leading trade body for the glass, glazing and fenestration sectors, was immediately invited and has already contributed at the first meeting, which took place on Wednesday 24 June.


Anna Scothern, Chief Executive of NHIC (pictured above), commented on the new Strategic Forum: “It will be a weekly video-meeting that will provide the formal place for NHIC members and #inittogether partners to come together to critically interpret proposals, build constructive alternatives and develop a clear voice of the sector.

“It will provide the Home Improvement sector with a strong platform to represent the industry’s perspective and table solutions to key Government departments.”

James Lee, GGF Director of External Affairs (pictured below), commented: “With the many challenges and ongoing developments around the impact of COVID-19, it is essential for trade bodies across the home improvement sector to come together.


“In addition, with the return to work and the end of the BREXIT Transition Period on 31 December 2020, it will be a crucial six months for the home improvement sector and vital that we tackle the issues together.”

The GGF will represent the glass, glazing and fenestration sectors at the NHIC Strategic Forum and cascade any news and developments to Members and the wider industry as and when they happen.
