Free Online Wellbeing Workshops Announced for Construction Workers


Calls to the UK’s ‘Construction Industry Helpline’ have increased 25% over the past 10 days which reflect the rising levels of anxiety and insecurity within the construction industry. To help offer support and wellbeing during these worrying times a series of free online lunchtime workshops have been announced for people working, in any capacity, in construction.

From mindfulness and meditation to resilience and controlling stress anyone can take part in these bite-sized online sessions as long as they have access to an email address and access to the internet, whether via smartphone, tablet or laptop. For full details visit

Sessions, which last for 45 minutes, will run weekly starting from Thursday 16 April – each starting at 12 noon:
Thurs 16 April / Top Tips for Resilience
Fri 24 April / Build a Work Life Balance
Mon 27 April / How to Meditate
Tues 5 May / How to Handle Stress
Wed 13 May / Mindfulness for You

The ‘Wellbeing workshops’ are the result of a new collaboration between UK’s Lighthouse Construction Industry Charity and leading construction software firm Construction Industry Solutions (COINS).
