A locally – and industry-led charity established to address the high rates of suicide in the construction sector. Building Wellness is an initiative that builds and strengthens our communities, across all construction-related worksites – residential and commercial building, civil, infrastructure, engineering and all related trades.
The Building Wellness programme helps people in the construction community build confidence and capabilities to support their own wellbeing and that of others. The impact of this community-based approach extends beyond the workplace, into everyday lives, and benefits our wider communities.
Building Wellness engages with workers, leaders, and businesses through training onsite and offsite and walks alongside individuals and/or worksites to address personal and business-related concerns and connects them with relevant support networks. Free and confidential help is available through the Trust’s coordinator.
The Building Wellness pledge is a call to action for all construction-related workplaces to join us in creating supportive and psychologically safe worksites for our people, businesses, and communities to thrive.
We work with local and national organisations to structure and implement evidence-based best practice wellbeing initiatives across worksites and communities, in order to drive meaningful change and create greater culture shift in how we understand and talk about mental wellbeing and improve the culture of our sector, together.
