Taylor Wimpey West Scotland is supporting the Lighthouse Club’s latest ‘Help inside the hardhat’ campaign as the charity campaigns to raise awareness of poor mental health generally within the construction industry.

The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is the only charity that provides emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to construction workers and their families. With no public funding, it relies on the generosity of those in the industry to continue its work.

Willie Chassels, assistant site manager at Newton Farm in Cambuslang and one of Taylor Wimpey’s trained Mental Health First Aiders, said: “As a responsible homebuilder, it is very important to us that we do what we can to help anyone working in construction with poor mental health to find the support they need.

“We are very supportive of the Lighthouse Club’s ‘Help inside the hardhat’ campaign and their posters are positioned strategically across this development at Newton Farm in Cambuslang. We plan to install the posters at other developments in the west of Scotland, and they include information about how to access the Construction Industry’s confidential 24-hour helpline.”
