We had a great day out at the Forest of Arden. What a spectacular venue with a Championship Golf Course which certainly tested us all.
It was nice to unwind and escape the busy work schedule; while raising awareness and supporting mental health in our industry.
These provide our members with the opportunity to enjoy a day at a top golf venue and unwind. Golf pros are on hand to provide advice as well an opportunity to beat the pro. There are raffles with good prizes and of course, a bar.
Sport is a great way for your employees to let off steam.
Should you need us to organise your day or to just assist your next company sports event we are here to help. Popular events include; golf, football, rugby, and long distance treks, however whatever the event, please get in touch.
We organise rugby and football matches and tournaments. There are also opportunities to attend training with professional players at well known sports venues.
Construction Sport is all about helping the workforce by raising awareness and providing a range of mental health resources.
We welcome the opportunity to organise sporting events for our members which are aimed at raising money for worthy causes.
This may be to support a worker or his family after a life changing event or simply to say thank you to someone for something special they may have done.

Accredited CPD training means the learning activity has reached the Continuing Professional Development Standards and benchmarks. The learning value has been scrutinised to ensure integrity and quality.
digital health platform
In partnership with Mente, we have created a UNIQUE mental health platform for the construction business and the workforce.
Platform users have access to a comprehensive learning library covering a range of mental health topics.
This supports increased knowledge in mental health, the triggers to poor mental health; with guidance on how to deal with different situations and recommended signposting to seek the appropriate professional help.
This is aimed at incidental learning, which enables you to reach employees in a way you might not have been previously able to do.
This is a pro-active way of managing mental health in the construction sector and enables the business to create a well informed and CPD accredited workforce.
We believe this is a game changer.
Your employees can access a range of awareness training courses, surveys and general information to support their wellbeing.
Many of the courses included in the platform are CPD accredited, so you can build a well informed and accredited team of workers. This is a pro-active approach to mental health, supporting & enhancing your existing mental health policy.
The two mandated CPD courses, cover Mental Health Awareness & Suicide. Employees receive a CPD certificate on completion.
HR TEAMS & MANAGERS
As well as CPD accredited courses, there are also legislation guides, policy templates and useful information on dealing with specific problems.
Surveys are created to help you identify specific areas of concern, so you can take the neccessary action. We provide reports on the use of the platform and you can record your employees progress & their successful accreditations.
CONSTRUCTION MENTAL HEALTH FIRST AID
The stigma around mens mental health is a very real issue, and something we incorporate into our Mental Health training.
The Military is a very ‘male dominated’ environment, so who better to educate on Men’s Mental Health than our Military Veterans?
You don’t need to ‘Man up’, men are allowed to talk about their Mental Health..!
The military got it right.
They knew they had a real problem with mental health & so they did something about it.
Construction has many parallels with the military. That's why we created a partnership with Elite Force Safety, a specialist military-based provider of mental health first aid training.
As their field based instructors and consultants are ex-military, they understand the type of problems construction workers may face.
Our FREE First Aid for Mental Health Action Plan covers ways in which a positive mental health culture can be supported within a workplace. It includes drug and alcohol abuse.
The 1-Day course will provide up to 8 learners with the knowledge to identify suspected mental health conditions and the skills to start a conversation. This enables early signposting to support further professional support.
Quarterly ongoing support meetings are provided to debrief with the recenty trained Mental Health First Aiders, discuss and assess trends or identify potential issues requiring particular focus.
EMERGENCY HEALTH SUPPORT IN A CRISIS
PTSD isn't just a military problem.
Construction has many similarities with the military or other services like the police.
Unfortunately, a traumatic event is likely to have a damaging effect on health and requires urgent professional treatment.
SAS-FIT aim to treat within just 48 hours and use a combination of therapies not available elsewhere.
support in a crisis
We have teamed up with SAS-fit, a specialist employee welfare company with a unique approach to mental health.
Who is it for?
Anyone who may have been a victim or witness to a traumatic event.
SAS-FIT specialise in assisting people in managing complex health issues, especially where there has been a traumatic or life changing event.
They aim to start treatment within 48 hours because this is the most effective way to treat serious mental health issues that have resulted from a serious or traumatic event.
This is a bespoke therapy service and not a one size fits all approach. Their unique approach is unavailable from the NHS, EAP or any other welfare service provider. Their customers include a number of Police Services.
Functional Integrated Therapy
This is the use of a combination of therapies and unique tools, developed to assist the worker/s until recovery is complete. No other welfare service provider has the FIT approach or can deliver such a high level of treatment, all with immediate access and no waiting lists for the duration of treatment.
DIGITAL BUSINESS PROFILE
Our team of videographers will visit to create a professional profile of your business, highlighting the commitment your business is making to support the wellbeing of your workforce.
Once completed and approved by you, this will be distributed through Construction Sports TV and media channels.
construction sport business hub
It’s always good to catch up with like minded people and share our experiences.
I’ve made some good friends and some very useful business connections along the way.
Construction Sport is all about bringing people together.
Construction Sport provides plenty of opportunity for our members to get together and play sport or just have a friendly chat.
Sport is a great way to drive conversation in an informal way, breaking down barriers that can often lead to awkward conversation.
As our events are all about letting off steam and raising awareness of the issue of poor mental health in our industry, we all have a common goal.
There is no doubt construction has dropped the ball in respect of mental health, so gathering together a collaroration of like minded people can really make a difference.
We offer a range of sponsorship opportunities across our events. These will vary depending on the event but we will make sure you are fully aware of them.
All members will receive access to a range of special offers. This may include offers provided by other members or from suppliers like Helly Hansen Workwear. We will notify all members as soon as offers become available.
We currently have 20% off all HELLY HENSEN WORKWEAR.
