A construction industry drinks reception held by the Considerate Constructors Scheme at the Imperial War Museum was the setting for the Scheme to support the launch of the Construction Industry Helpline by the Lighthouse Club.
The Construction Industry Helpline will provide confidential, 24/7 support to the construction industry’s workforce and their families on a range of topics including finance, depression, occupational health and wellbeing, illness and bereavement.
The new helpline is funded by the Lighthouse Club, donations from individuals, businesses and organisations in the construction industry and through the purchase of wristbands and posters.
The industry can show their support for the helpline through purchasing the wristbands, which include the helpline’s number and web address and come with a free information handout card, and A2 information posters to display around sites.
The helpline number is 0845 605 1956 and the website is at www.constructionindustryhelpline.com
