The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity
The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is the only charity that provides financial and emotional support to the construction community and their families who have suffered an injury or long term illness or simply need a helping hand. We receive no public funding and rely on the generosity of those within in the industry to help us continue our vital work. Shocking statistics show that there is still much work to be done to improve the safety and emotional wellbeing of our construction community.
The Construction Industry Helpline which is managed and funded by the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity has so far in 2017 received 661 requests for help. Of these requests, we have given mental health and wellbeing and/or debt and legal advice to 456 workers, reviewed 205 new cases of construction families in distress, seeking emergency financial assistance and granted over £275,000 to directly support construction families in crisis.
