During these difficult and uncertain times we would like to reassure everyone that our 24/7 Construction Industry Helpline and complementary app are still fully operational to support our construction families in crisis. All calls are free and 100% confidential.
If you have been affected by the impact of the Coronavirus (COVID-19) please do not hesitate to get in touch with us and we will support you and your family in any way we can.
For companies wanting to ensure that their employees know where to turn to for help, our helpline packs can still be ordered and will be dispatched to you as a matter of urgency.
In the meantime, the postponement of our many events and fundraising activities across the country is having a devastating impact on our expected income. So, now more than ever, we need companies to pledge an annual donation and become a Company Supporter so that we can continue our vital work during these extraordinary times. Please help us to help our own and ensure that no worker is left alone in a crisis.
