Whitehead – now supporters of the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity

29 February 2024

The Lighthouse 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 Charity’s 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. Whitehead are also delighted to announce that we will be holding a day of fundraising for The Lighthouse Charity, a ‘Lighthouse Day’, in the form of a 5 a side football match, being held at Powerleague, Cardiff on Friday 31st May 2024. Lighthouse Days are important for fundraising and spreading awareness about the incredible work the charity undertakes.

“Working with Lighthouse is an important part of who we are as a business and how we support our staff” commented Hayley Morton, Conscience Coordinator for Whitehead. “We’re huge advocates of supporting charities as well as our communities and our charity football tournament is designed to raise money for this incredible charity who we’re now partnering with”.
