TAYLOR Wimpey West Scotland has backed the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity’s help inside the hardhat campaign.

The initiative aims to raise awareness of poor mental health within the construction industry, with the charity providing emotional, physical, and financial wellbeing support to construction workers at their families.

Commenting on the campaign, Willie Chassels, assistant site manager at Newton Farm 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.”
