BCC Policy Manager Rachel Timmins said: “It was an informative meeting, which provided more insight about the Lighthouse Club and how its work relates to our members. We are grateful that they joined us.”

BCC President Edward Naylor, who is also a trustee of the Lighthouse Club, added: “Lighthouse is doing some really important work, with its 24/7 helpline a particularly important resource for those working in construction and its supply chain.”

The next meeting of the Mental Health Roundtable is on 20 September and will be a hybrid meeting, providing an opportunity to meet in person if members wish. For more information, contact Rachel.
