Collateral for you & your clients

The PCA has launched a series of short videos on the basics of damp and condensation. These have been created for you to share and to use as an informative/educational tool to help improve people's knowledge and awareness of damp, condensation and mould issues. You may also wish to embed these on your own website and/or share with your own contacts and clients, or direct them back to us? To view the videos, simply click on the button below.


#IIWC23 - Breaking new ground!

Putting members at the forefront of the invasive weeds industry has long been the goal for the International Invasive Weed Conference, and this year's event is no different. Thursday 16th November will see members, legislators, academics and professionals from across the sector come together and share knowledge on new processes and practices, embrace new innovations and spark discussion and debate.

From controversial topics such as glyphosate and dormancy, to ground-breaking and innovative treatment methods...what else can we expect from this year's event? Technical Manager Daniel Docking provides a sneak preview in his latest blog, which you can read by clicking on the button below...


World Mental Health Day

Next Tuesday (10th October) is World Mental Health Day. We are all too aware that the rate of poor mental health is rising, particularly within the construction sector. We were very pleased to welcome Revd Kevin Fear to our recent conference who delivered a very hard-hitting presentation on mental health, which we can now share.

You can view this presentation via the button below where you will also find options to share with your team, your colleagues and your friends. Keep an eye out next week via our social channels as we share more in support of World Mental Health Day. It's vital that we check in with one another over a cuppa or let's keep talking.
