NFDC underlines mental health commitment

The National Federation of Demolition Contractors has announced the launch of a new Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub as part of its website.

The Hub acts as a central portal for NFDC’s own Mental Health and Wellbeing resources along with signposting to third-party information. Organised into Resources for Employers and Resources for Individuals, it is easy to find comprehensive information covering a range of mental health topics, without having to search across multiple websites.

Information and support tools are also grouped by issue, such as stress, financial wellbeing and supporting others and by assets to download, watch or read, such as posters, videos or articles.

Although – surprisingly – it is not mentioned in the NFDC statement issued this morning, a focus on mental health awareness has been a key theme during the reign of outgoing president Holly Price/

Since signing the Building Mental Health Charter, NFDC has made significant investments in developing CPD certified training workshops for Managers and Ambassadors, producing resources such as posters, toolbox talks, pocket cards and articles, supporting the Lighthouse Club Construction Industry Charity and now launching the Mental Health and Wellbeing Hub – with further plans for on-demand e-learning modules underway. Improving Mental Health and Wellbeing in the industry is a long-term strategic commitment for NFDC.
