MATES IN CONSTRUCTION

MATES in Construction is a charity established in 2008 to reduce the high level of suicide among Australian construction workers. We are unique in that we foster ownership and control of the program with the Australian building and construction industry.

The MATES in Construction program is based on the simple idea that “suicide is everyone’s business” and that if the building and construction industry in Australia is to improve the mental health and wellbeing of workers and to reduce suicide then it cannot be left to the mental health professionals, but rather everyone in the industry must play their part.

BUILDCORP FOUNDATION

The Buildcorp Foundation is on a mission to support good mental health and help put an end to suicide. Together with our supporters, we aim to tackle the spectrum of our mental health crisis by donating to charities that offer both crisis support (Lifeline) and prevention through mental health education (currently Smiling Mind).

A donation to the Foundation enables you to contribute to a bigger and wider impact, not just for those in crisis who need it most, but also for a mentally healthy and resilient generation of tomorrow. By tackling this from both sides, we can work together to put an end to suicide.

TOUCHED BY CHRISTOPHER FOUNDATION

Touched by Christopher Ltd was established in July 2019 after the tragic death of Christopher Cassaniti, who was crushed by a collapsed scaffold at a jobsite in Macquarie Park. Christopher’s death touched many people in the community and the parents Robert and Patrizia Cassaniti were overwhelmed by the outpouring of financial and emotional support.

In turn they would like to give back to help families in the same situation that have lost loved ones in the construction industry.
