SCHEME NEWS

Mulalley are the first construction company to show support for the Construction Industry

Helpline by purchasing wristbands for their workforce.

Mulalley is the first UK

construction company to show

their commitment to improving

the welfare of their workforce

by purchasing £5000 worth of

Construction Industry Helpline

wristbands.

The wristbands, to be worn by the

workforce, have been developed

by the Considerate Constructors

Scheme as a way of raising

awareness of this valuable resource

and to raise money for the funding

of the helpline.

The Construction Industry Helpline

provides free 24/7 support to

the construction industry’s

workforce and their families

on a range of topics including

finance, depression, occupational

health and wellbeing, illness and

bereavement.

The new helpline is funded via the

Lighthouse Construction Industry

Charity Club through donations

from individuals, businesses

and construction industry

organisations, and through the

purchasing of wristbands and

posters from the Scheme.

As well as distributing the

wristbands, the Scheme has also

committed to issuing the helpline

posters to all of its registered sites

to raise greater awareness of this

invaluable support resource.

All profits from the sale of

wristbands and posters will

be donated to the Lighthouse

Construction Industry Charity

helpline to fund the helpline and its

ongoing support to the workforce.

Bruce Benson, Operations Director

of Mulalley said: “Mulalley is

delighted to be the first company

to support this unique helpline.

We do hope that the rest of the

industry recognises, as we did, the

need to support our workforce in

times of need as we feel sure the

industry will benefit greatly from

this very special initiative.”

Edward Hardy, Chief Executive

of the Considerate Constructors

Scheme said: “We are hugely

grateful to Mulalley for being the

first to commit to the helpline

and to encourage its use among

their workforce. The helpline

Mulalley are first to show their

support for the industry helpline
