Manchester-based healthcare supplier, Steroplast, are partnering with the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity to raise awareness of their many charitable services. They are also raising much needed funds for the charity through the sale of their premium range of workplace first aid kits.
The Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity is the only charity that provides emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support to the construction community and their families.
A crucial element of the charity’s strategy is to provide a wide range of free and widely available pro-active resources to support the industry.
The charity provides a 24/7 Construction Industry Helpline which provides a range of free and confidential wellbeing support services and this is complemented by their free Self Support App and their recently launched text HARDHAT to 85258 service as yet another route to support.
They also offer a variety of free construction focussed training programmes ranging from hour long interactive wellbeing sessions through to the MHFA England approved Mental Health First Aider course.
Steroplast, inspired by The Lighthouse Club’s goal of providing proactive resources to support health and wellbeing in the construction industry, was moved to fortify the charity’s incredible endeavours by donating profits from its line of high-spec workplace first aid kits.
For a limited time, in a bid to encourage interest from other organisations in this charitable venture, members of the British and Irish Trade Alliance (BITA) receive a discount of 10% on Steroplast’s British Standard first aid kit range, with a further 15% donation from the proceeds going directly to the charity.
Steroplast has been a trusted healthcare supplier across seven sectors in the UK for over 25 years. NHS-approved and endorsed by medical experts, Steroplast is one of the best brands for businesses to have on their side in an emergency.
Steroplast Managing Director, Adam Brown, commented “first aid provisions are much more than simply a requirement for health and safety compliance. They help people to work with confidence, assist each other in a crisis, and save lives at the critical moment. We couldn’t be more proud to support a charity like the Lighthouse Club which upholds the admirable people that make our construction industry flourish in the UK.”
Bill Hill, CEO of the Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity, added,”We’re delighted that Steroplast are helping to raise awareness of our services by including one of our helpline cards within their first aid kits. We want to make mental health as important as physical health, so if just one person reaches out for help as a result of this campaign then that is fantastic.”
