The British Cleaning Council works to benefit the cleaning industry. We work at national and international levels to improve standards and assist the cleaning industry in its progression. Most of our funding comes from the Cleaning Show, which next year is making its London debut at the Excel Center. The profits made from the show are ploughed back into the industry in the form of grants to finance new projects and assist in research that can benefit the industry as a whole. We are also a campaigning organisation and are currently pursuing initiatives to promote a living wage. Some of our other policy areas are outlined below.
