The British Institute of Kitchen, Bedroom & Bathroom Installation (BiKBBI) has confirmed that it is introducing a number of measures to support its members throughout the COVID19 crisis.
The organisation is now offering a free three-month extension to memberships, as well as the provision of a fee-free Direct Debit option to help support cashflow.
The BiKBBI has also introduced measures which simplify how members update information, in order to assist with compliance obligations during a time where other regulatory organisations, like Gas Safe and electrical bodies, may be experiencing challenges issuing formal documents to their members.
BiKBBI Communications Officer, Anna-Marie Belton, said: ‘Communication is critical right now, so in addition to the daily email updates linking them to the latest advice and support from both us and Government, we have also introduced a new WhatsApp service that helps members connect with us and update their records.’
BiKBBI CEO Damian Walters added: ‘Now is not the time to sit and wait for normality to return. Now is the time to prepare for recovery and ensure, that when normality does return, that we’re in as strong a place as we could possibly be. The guidance we’re providing in communication is critical for immediate survival, but our members should be at home strengthening their own business propositions in readiness for a ‘fast start off the blocks’ when the time comes.’
