Make it Visible

1 Aug 2023

CLOCS Strategic Partner, The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is the only charity that provides emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to the construction community and their families.

A crucial element of the charity’s strategy is to provide a wide range of free and widely available pro-active resources to support the industry.

The charity offers a free and confidential 24/7 Construction Industry Helpline and text HARDHAT service which provides a range of information, guidance and support on a huge variety of wellbeing issues. These services are complemented by their free Self Support App which offers another route to support, along with their Lighthouse Beacons who provide a safe space for people to share concerns.

The Lighthouse Club Wellbeing Academy offers a variety of free soft skills and leadership training delivered across a variety of platforms to suit every learning style from self-paced e-learning, tutor led online masterclasses and seminars, through to bespoke onsite training.

Their Help Inside the Hard Hat aims to raise awareness of mental health issues in the construction industry and you can join the campaign for better mental health by downloading free resources and site hoardings artwork from their website.

Their #MakeItVisible team are reaching out to the frontline trades to let them know about the crucial support services they provide for free across the UK and Ireland. They’re visiting construction companies, builder’s merchants, hire centres and sites across the country to help spread the word and break the stigma of #mentalhealthinconstruction.
