Arco Extends Partnership with Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity

06 April 2022

Arco has extended its support of the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity, the only charity that provides emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to construction workers and their families.

The construction industry has one of the worst suicide rates in the UK, with two construction workers taking their own lives every working day, on average. The charity was created to combat this and provides a free and confidential 24/7 helpline which provides emergency financial aid and support on a huge variety of emotional and physical wellbeing issues. They also offer a free self-support app, a text HARDHAT support service and free mental health and wellbeing training.

Reliant on the generosity of its donors, Arco's continued support will help ensure that the Lighthouse Club has a sustainable income to grow and deliver its critical services, including its ‘Help Inside the Hard Hat' campaign.

The campaign aims to raise awareness of the importance of mental health by signposting the construction community to pro-active resources, including interactive wellbeing sessions and the MHFA England approved Mental Health First Aider Course.

Dave Cox, Head of the Construction Sector at Arco, said:

"Construction is vital to the UK economy and its workers are the lifeblood of the industry. Having initially supported the Lighthouse Club with a community grant during the COVID-19 pandemic, I am delighted that Arco's relationship with the charity has become a more enduring partnership. We look forward to continuing to support the Lighthouse Club's critical work in the year to come."

Bill Hill, CEO of the Lighthouse Club, said:

"We are delighted to have Arco as a company supporter. With Arco's sponsorship, we can continue to make a meaningful difference and deliver the emergency emotional and financial support that the construction community so desperately needs."
