Brogan Group have signed up to the Building Mental Health Charter. This is a cross-industry group that enable all parts of the construction sector to access mental health support, provide awareness and training and put in place a structure and systems to support people working in and around our industry.
Brogan Group are also now halfway through the Tall Building Charity Challenge they set up, raising money for the Lighthouse Charity that provides emotional, physical, and financial wellbeing support to construction workers and their families.
Bill Hill, CEO of the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity said:
"As well as being one of our valued Company Supporters, Brogan are also undertaking a fantastic fundraising challenge for us which is great news. They're also helping us raise awareness of the importance of positive mental health in the industry which is crucial to our mission that no construction worker or their family should feel alone in a crisis".
Brogan Group volunteers in the UK and Ireland have so far clocked up over 1,900km walking or running a set distance each week for 8 consecutive weeks with the distance based on a multiple of the height of 8 Tall buildings Brogan Group have provided Access on. So far Brogan Group volunteers have climbed buildings including Boland’s Quay Dublin, Apex House, Wembley, West Tower, Liverpool and are now walking up the ‘Walkie Talkie’ Tower.
Brogan Group work with organisation’s like the Lighthouse Club on training up their own Mental health ‘First Aiders’ that support the wider staff at Brogan Group.
Brogan Group are looking to raise £5000 for the Lighthouse Club Charity, who receive no public funding to support their mental health provisions and help out those of our industry in need.
