Following the release of the GGF’s two free Safe Guides for Homeowners and Companies respectively, and having published over 55 related articles, the GGF is now aiming to provide even more support to continue helping the industry get through the COVID-19 crisis.
John Agnew, Managing Director commented, “Our first priority will always be to help our Members, but in this current situation, it is in everyone’s interests for the GGF to also help the entire industry recover. We’ll continue to provide free guidance and information to all companies in the industry, but for Members, we will be putting together some additional activities to provide even more support. It is important the industry’s supply chain starts functioning and for companies to work together. However, they must ensure they can work safely within the Government Guidance which is the foundation of our all of our articles, Safe Guides and advice.”
The GGF is now in the process of completing its latest plans for the second half of 2020, which will introduce more new services designed to help the industry through the COVID-19 crisis. The full details will be revealed in the next few weeks, but Members can expect to benefit from promotional tools, greater engagement with GGF staff and other Members, as well as more high quality trusted guidance. The GGF will also continue to work closely with key Government departments and related construction bodies, to ensure ongoing political influence in new Government initiatives, legislation, standards and working practices.
John Agnew summarised, “The GGF, as the industry’s leading trade body, has always been well placed to deliver the services to benefit our Members and the industry. Over the next few weeks and months, we will be introducing new services and activities to help Members operate safely and responsibly. There’s a lot to be done in this very challenging environment but we will to ensure our Members and the industry recovers and look forward to better times ahead.”
