We’re Proud to Support the Lighthouse Club, the Construction Industry Mental Health Charity
We’re proud supporters of the Lighthouse Club and have committed to an annual support pledge for the charity. The Lighthouse Club is a charity that provides mental health and financial support to the construction community and their families. It offers a dedicated Construction Industry Helpline which is run 24/7 for those in need of support and a helping hand.
The Charity reports that every day in the UK 2 construction workers take their own life, and stress, anxiety and depression account for one fifth of all work related illness. The Lighthouse Club provides emotional and nurturing support and works with a vast network of organisations and supporters to ensure they can offer the right support to those who’ve fallen on hard times. The Charity can sanction counselling sessions free of charge, provide access to lawyers and even provide financial grants for those facing poverty situations.
Adrian Hurley, Managing Director, comments:
“As a business we feel the mental health care of those in the industry is a shared responsibility and that includes ourselves. We are keen to develop our own processes to offer greater support to our workers and recognise that mental health is a huge player in work related illness and time off work. We are proud to support the excellent work the Lighthouse Club delivers, which is integral to help prevent mental health and financial issues and suicide amongst construction workers. I would urge anyone in need to contact the Charity and take full advantage of the support they offer.”
