The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity has been providing emergency financial assistance to the construction community since 1956. The charity has now distributed over £15 million to over 14,500 construction workers and their families.
It exists to:
Provide financial assistance, welfare and legal support to the Construction Community in times of hardship and stress.
Promote initiatives aimed at avoiding accidents and improving safety on construction sites.
Support educational initiatives aimed at improving employment conditions and career opportunities within the construction industry.
Support and deliver local and national events that embrace networking, fundraising and fellowship within the construction industry
The Charity receives no public finance and relies on the support from within the industry and its nationwide network of 21 independent, volunteer managed Regional Lighthouse Clubs to fund its charitable work.
