When Mates in Mind was launched in 2017, our charity’s work was rooted in improving mental health across the construction industry.
In our first year of action we partnered with organisations across the construction industry, building a community of 185 Supporter organisations, reaching more than 187,000 individuals across the sector.
Due to our success in transforming the mental health culture of workplaces across the sector, we have gained recognition in new sectors. As a result of this, we have expanded our framework and branding to include workers in industries who may not necessarily wear hard hats, such as manufacturing, ports, transport etc and office-based workers in the industry.
Whilst we will be looking to reach people across new industries, supporting and representing them through our blue ‘hard hats off’ brand, we remain committed to the industry change we aimed for within construction. Therefore, alongside the ‘hard hats off’ branding, we will continue to use our yellow ‘hard hats on’ logo – as this remains a core part of who we are.
