Elliot is in the process of launching Cavalry Pest Solutions as a Community
Interest Company, a non-profit social enterprise.
Elliot explained "It's really quite simple, A CiC is run just like an ordinary LTD
Company but has an asset lock and a profit cap set by the government,
profits made by the company above this are re-invested into the community.
Cavalry Pest Solutions CiC will provide professional & efficient Pest Control
to domestic, commercial & Rural customers and the surplus profits will be
directed to providing free educational talks and workshops to community
groups and to providing a form of subsidised Pest Control that supports Local
A booklet published by the Chartered Institute of Environmental Health, 'The
Perfect Storm' and a recent Episode of Panorama have highlighted the
potential consequences of budget Cuts on Council Pest Control Departments.
The Chief Executive of The Chartered Institute for Environmental Health, Mr
Graham Jukes believes that the proposal "is very much in line with current
government thinking and will add in some way to addressing the problem of
the poor and disadvantaged in dealing with pest control problems".
The Pest Control Industry is undergoing a huge period of change due to
European legislation as well as dealing with the effect of the current austerity
measures and Elliot feels that his new approach has the potential to make a
significant contribution "Both the British Pest Control Association and the
CIEH have highlighted the fact that the public image of the Pest Control
Industry needs changing and I am firmly committed to using Cavalry Pest
Solutions CIC to contribute to raising the profile of our Industry whilst at the
same time providing support to Local Authorities that hopefully may ease
some of the financial pressure they are under. I'm passionate about Pest
Control, It's my profession and I'm proud of it, and I feel privileged to be part
of something that can make a difference. Customers can feel that too,
knowing that whenever they choose Cavalry Pest Solutions to provide Pest
Control Inspections, Treatments and Proofing, a percentage will be invested
into improving the quality of living of those most in need"
