Construction charity goes on tour with mental health initiative

The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity will be visiting construction sites across the UK and Ireland in 2024 as part of its #MakeItVisible tour aiming to deliver wellbeing support – and companies in the industry can request a free visit via its website.

All members of the Make it Visible team are ‘on the tools’ and share their own experiences in an informal way while informing workers of the support available to them and their families. The ‘Toolbox Talk’ allows everyone on site to share their first-hand life experiences and focus on the importance of positive mental health and wellbeing. There is also a dedicated, private space for confidential conversations.

Participants will receive a Make it Visible goody bag containing information on the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity's services and some free gifts – there will also be an opportunity to enter a draw to win a prize valued at £400.

The first tour begins in Scotland on 5 February and finishes in the North East on 19 July with many more regions covered in between.

To request a visit, see the Lighthouse Charity's website.
