Charities

Since our inception we’ve been aware that our success depends on everyone working together – both inside and outside of our business.

‘Simultaneous promotion of all interests’

This is one of our core business values and highlights the responsibility we feel towards the people and communities we serve, worldwide. We take pride in our ability to find suitable jobs for temporary workers, and ideal candidates for our clients; but our commitment to society does not stop there.

For the 1.3 million people in the UK with a disability (who are available for work) only half are employed, compared to 80% of non-disabled people. Providing practical assistance through Support Workers can improve their chances of establishing a fulfilling career.

Over the past 10 years, Randstad student and worker support has worked in partnership with educational establishments, workplaces and Jobcentre Plus to provide that support. The support workers we provide typically range from specialist tutors, note takers, travel buddies and job aides.

'Shaping the world of work'

Work has a profound impact on the state of our society. It’s our job to find fulfilling careers for our candidates, and high performing workers for our clients. But we also believe it’s our duty to work with the developing world to support their jobs infrastructure.

Construction Youth Trust

About

Construction Youth Trust is a charity whose aim is to inspire and enable young people to overcome barriers and discover a career in the Construction and Built Environment sector.


Our mission is to inspire and support young people to achieve their full career potential in the Construction and Built Environment sector. Social mobility is at the heart of our work and we prioritise supporting the hardest to reach young people, i.e. those from low income backgrounds, most likely to miss out on opportunities or facing barriers to employment. We help young people recognise their potential and discover opportunities that have never previously been presented to them.

We believe that by building long-term partnerships between schools and the Construction and Built Environment sector that we can dismantle the misconstrued and out dated perception that many teachers, parents and young people have of the industry. The breadth of roles available within the Construction and Built Environment is huge and diverse. By engaging young people at an early stage, we have the opportunity to broaden their career horizons and give them a clear line of sight to the wide range of real jobs and rewarding careers the modern industry has to offer. 


CRASH

CRASH

What we do

CRASH is a unique, practical charity that assists homelessness and hospice charities with construction related projects, creating places that care for people.

It is our policy to support charities with practical elements of their building projects. We believe this can hugely improve the experience of the construction process for the charities we help, and create better places for people to live and work.

How we do it

We work collaboratively with all of the projects we support to deliver assistance in three ways:

  • Free of charge professional expertise
  • Sourcing and specifying building materials; pro-bono or discounted
  • And awarding cash grants donated by the construction and property industry

Why we do it

Well designed and expertly built environments have a positive effect on how we all feel and behave.

This is especially true for people who are homeless, vulnerable or sick and those who care for them.

The statutory annual accounts for CRASH can be found on the Charity Commission’s website.  Please go to www.charitycommission.gov.uk/find-charities/ and enter our Registered Charity Number 1054107 in the search box for access.

About

We are the only charity that provides financial and emotional support to the construction community and their families who have suffered an injury or long term illness or simply need a helping hand. We receive no public funding and rely on the generosity of those within in the industry to help us continue our vital work. Shocking statistics show that there is still much work to be done to improve the safety and emotional wellbeing of our construction community, but we can only do that with your support.



Mates in Mind

Who we are :

Mates in Mind was established by the Health in Construction Leadership Group (HCLG) with the support of the British Safety Council in September 2016. Mates in Mind is a registered charity operating in the UK. The concept of Mates in Mind was launched at the end of January 2017 at the HCLG’s 2nd Construction Summit.

Mates in mind aims to provide clear information to employers on available support and guidance on mental health, mental illness and mental wellbeing, and how they can address this within their organisations.

What we do :

Mates in Mind is not looking to reinvent the wheel. It helps to make sense of available options and provides support to employers. It does so in partnership with leading charities and organisations such as Mind, Samaritans and Mental Health First Aid England.

Our vision – there is no health without mental health

Mates in Mind aims to:

  • Raise awareness and understanding of mental health and mental ill-health.
  • Help people to understand how, when and where to get support.
  • Break the silence and stigma through promoting cultures of positive wellbeing throughout the industry.

Mates in Mind has an ambitious goal – to reach 100,000 workers in the first year, and by 2025, we aim to have reached 75% of the construction industry.

We recognise that one of our biggest challenges will be in reaching small and medium-sized enterprises (SME) – but by working collaboratively through supply chains and with trade bodies, we are confident that we will be able to achieve our aims and success will be shared by all.
