The NRL Group has added its financial support to the Lighthouse Club construction charity by signing up to become a company supporter.
The charity provides free support to thousands of workers across the UK and Ireland, helping where it’s needed most and raising awareness of key topics such as mental health, as well as providing emotional, physical and financial wellbeing support.
The NRL Group operates across a range of engineering sectors, such as directly engaging operational teams to undertake rail maintenance work trackside, and contracting thousands of temporary workers each year to support client construction and infrastructure projects across the UK and internationally.
Supporting these workers is of the upmost importance to NRL’s Group Executive board and regional teams, including their welfare both inside and outside of work. Signing up as a company supporter of the Lighthouse Club means that NRL’s workers have a route to access services, from an emergency food shop to receiving confidential counselling.
Group Director, Greg Compton, said: “We’re delighted to be able to join the growing list of organisations supporting the Lighthouse Club, and thank them for the tireless work their team does to help construction workers and their families.
“It’s no secret that the construction industry is a widely male-dominated industry, making the need to talk about mental health and break the taboo of asking for help even more important. The Lighthouse Club also provides access for our own NRL colleagues to undertake recognised Mental Health First Aid training.
“We’re looking forward to seeing how we can actively support the Lighthouse Club, and how we can raise awareness within our contracting community, and the wider industry, about the fantastic services they provide.”
