Charity Number: 1187084
With the global stigma surrounding mental health slowly being broken down, one sector in which this remains an issue is the construction industry. As an organisation with a large presence within the sector we have created our own foundation in the hope of uniting our key partners and setting out our own initiatives to tackle these issues head on.
Signposting and funding existing charities is an essential part of what we will do through the Pagabo Foundation. We also hope to ensure financial support is made available to SMEs and other organisations working in the construction industry, providing a platform for greater future support for construction workers.
Get involved and donate to our latest initiative
In May, 18 teams will take part in an active assault course, all in effort to promote better mental health through exercise and to raise additional funds for the Pagabo Foundation.
Raising awareness of a taboo topic is the first battle in making the discussion of mental health more acceptable. We want to drive our industry to take huge leaps forward in reducing the stigma surrounding mental health, creating conversations around the topic while educating as many people as possible with where they can seek help they might need.
Mental health awareness has made great strides in recent years, but in construction there is still a way to go in improving awareness and acceptance with the people who work within it. Our Foundation will aim to unite our key partners to break down those barriers in the industry from the top down.
Making support and advice as readily available as possible is key to making sure the right support is in place for the people who need it.
Through signposting we aim to make sure support and advice is easily accessible on a range topics.
Meet the eleven trustees who have made a commitment to the Pagabo Foundation to actively promote and raise funds, all with the aim of combatting issues surrounding mental health in the construction industry.
