deserves a chance.

We invest a lot of time into making sure our workforce is happy and healthy, through occupational and mental health checks, risk assessments and offering skills sessions for career development.

We believe that everyone deserves a chance.

We’re passionate about working with marginalised groups and levelling the playing field with our “Through the Gate” programme.
We help to rehabilitate ex-offenders and get them ready for reintegration into society with better job prospects. We provide an insight into our industries and the knowledge to give them a head start. 
We also work with ex-military officers to show them where else they can apply their transferable skills, simultaneously narrowing the skills shortage gap within our industries.
The Construction Industry Helpline provides a 24/7 safety net for all construction workers and their families in the UK and Ireland. It is a charitable service funded by the industry, for the industry and provides:

  • Emergency financial aid to construction families in crisis
  • Advice on occupational health and mental wellbeing
  • Support on legal, tax and debt management matters

The helpline is funded by The Lighthouse Club which has been delivering charitable welfare and support to the construction community since 1956, who in turn are funded by and supported by the businesses and people in our industry and our network of 21 regional volunteer clubs.

Working with young people, ex-offenders and organisations focused on Education, Prevention and Rehabilitation, we aim to not only prevent crime, by raising awareness of the consequences but to also help rebuild lives, in a unique way, which acts as a catalyst for positive change, makes communities safer and creates social value.

Hire a Hero is a charity that supports service leavers through the transition into civilian life. We work in partnership with public, private and third sector organisations to provide a network of support and to signpost service leavers to the most appropriate resources as required.

To support all service leavers and veterans, regular or reserve from all three services, regardless of time served, make the successful transition to meaningful, sustainable civilian employment.

Every working day, two construction workers take their own life. As an industry, we need to do more to help and support our workforce and their families
