Supporting the Lighthouse Construction charity
Quadrant Building Control is proud to be a Corporate Sponsor of the Lighthouse Construction charity. https://www.lighthouseclub.org/
There are 3 main strands to the charity’s activities
- The Construction Industry Helpline – https://www.constructionindustryhelpline.com/ . The construction industry has one of the highest rates of suicide of any profession and every day two construction workers take their own life. The helpline offers immediate mental health and well-being support and refers to professional counselling services
- The Building Mental Health portal- https://www.buildingmentalhealth.net/ which is creating a framework and charter for mental health in the industry and provides companies with support and resources. This is in partnership with citb.
- Delivering emergency financial aid, support and advice to construction workers’ families in crisis
Our role as an Approved Inspector brings us into contact with people across the whole construction process and so, in addition to providing financial sponsorship, we as a company are well placed to promote awareness and to distribute information about Lighthouse activities across various channels. During 2020 we also aim to be getting more involved with fundraising activities.
The helpline operates 24/7
