The National Home Improvement Council (NHIC) are winners of this year's BUILD Magazine Awards - Best Home Improvement Advocacy - UK

The NHIC is the umbrella organisation for the UK refurbishment, maintenance and home improvement sector. Established in 1974 by Lord Ezra Kt MBE, it is the longest-serving voluntary membership organisation supporting the domestic RMI and broader Home Improvement sector in the UK.

As an ambassador for collaborative action, the NHIC works across its membership, broader industry and government to improve the nation’s homes together.

Post COVID-19 recovery together with the new demands on homes for homeworking, home-schooling and exercising at home alongside the demographic demands of an increasing and ageing population, carbon emissions, fuel poverty and the ever-present concerns regarding an ageing workforce and skills shortage; the need for advocacy to raise awareness and the standard of home improvement is never-ending.

The NHIC continues to inform, support, influence and connect members while being an impartial and trusted source of evidence-based expertise and knowledge.

“We will continue to advocate on behalf of the RMI sector the need for working together to decarbonise existing homes, create jobs and rebuild the post covid economy.” Says NHIC Chief Executive Anna Scothern
