Lighthouse Spreads Message of Support to our North West Team

Our North West team were proud to welcome representatives of the construction industry charity Lighthouse as part of its #MakeItVisible’ UK tour.

Lighthouse is the only charity that provides emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to the construction community and their families. A crucial element of its strategy is to provide a wide range of free and widely available pro-active resources to support the industry.

Approximately 30 colleagues from our North West headquarters attended the event to hear Ray, Rob and Sam from Lighthouse deliver a ‘Toolbox Talk’ about the charity and what they do to help others.

Rob and Ray then shared their first-hand life experiences and how the Lighthouse Charity helped them. Hearing their story was very emotional.

As part of the tour, Lighthouse also provides a ‘Safe Space’ around its #MakeItVisible tour van as a chance for construction workers to engage with their team on a one-to-one basis and ask any questions they might have.

Rebecca Barrett, construction secretary at Wain Homes North West, said: “Everyone at Wain Homes would like to say thank you to Lighthouse for an educational and moving visit in which they shared how free, confidential support can be accessed for anybody working in construction.

“Creating an environment where everybody counts is one of Wain Homes’s key values and Lighthouse’s objectives are aligned to our own culture of compassionate colleague support. Everyone who attended found the session interesting, informative and reassuring.”
