Health & well being matters

Posted on 25/06/2018 by C Wagner

We take the health and well being of all our construction workers seriously and understand it is an issue that needs to be high on the agenda, in particular that of mental health which is so often not talked about. We'd like to highlight the work the Construction Industry Helpline does in conjunction with The Lighthouse Club as an invaluable service to the industry.

The Construction Industry Helpline

The Construction Industry Helpline provides a 24/7 safety net for all construction workers and their families in the UK and Ireland. It is a charitable service funded by the industry, for the industry and provides;

  • Emergency financial aid to construction families in crisis
  • Advice on occupational health and mental wellbeing
  • Support on legal, tax and debt management matters

The helpline is funded by The Lighthouse Club which has been delivering charitable welfare and support to the construction community since 1956, who in turn are funded by and supported by the businesses and people in our industry and our network of 21 regional volunteer clubs. 

Benefits to you

Those working in the industry, as well as their families, can contact the 24/7 confidential Construction Industry Helpline on 0345 605 1956 to access:
