NFRC Manifesto 2017

The National Federation of Roofing Contractors (NFRC) urges the incoming government to agree to support its campaign to professionalise the UK roofing industry specifically related to its two principle objectives:-

  • Support for an accredited roofing sector, enabling through assessment those employees with existing skills, knowledge and experience, to be officially recognised, to provide a foundation for upskilling existing workers, and to launch a career path for new entrants and apprenticeships.

  • The future Government’s commitment to using only accredited roofing professionals on all public funded projects and to encourage uptake across the overall built environment.

The NFRC is committed to raising the profile of the roofing industry with a concerted campaign to garner support from the future Government and key stakeholders. With your support, we can realise accreditation for our sector which will ensure healthy future prospects for your company and the industry at large.
