2024 Charity Partner The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity 

The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity 

The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is the only charity that provides emotional, physical and financial well-being support to construction workers and their families. They receive no public funding and rely on the generosity of those within the industry to help continue their vital work.

They have been delivering charitable support to the construction community since 1956 when a group of gentlemen had been attending a Ministry of Public Buildings and Works Exhibition on Tyneside. Under the light of St Mary’s Lighthouse in Whitley Bay, they vowed to extend the goodwill they enjoyed at the show by starting something to unite and benefit the entire industry and so the Lighthouse Club was formed.

Their Work
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 provides a 24/7 Construction Industry Helpline which provides a range of free and confidential wellbeing support services and this is complemented by their free Construction Industry Helpline App which offers expert guidance on a huge variety of wellbeing issues.

They also offer a variety of free construction-focused training programmes ranging from hour-long interactive wellbeing masterclasses through to the MHFA England-approved Mental Health First Aider course.
