Host your very own Big Brew

Register interest in hosting a Big Brew event and help to end the stigma around mental health in our industry
The Big Brew is proudly supported by Big Red Construction.
What is a Big Brew?

The Big Brew is an annual campaign to encourage UK construction industry workers and tradespeople to come together over a brew to support one another and remove the taboo around mental health. 

The initiative is focused on improving awareness of both mental health issues and routes to available support for members of the UK construction industry. 

This year’s Big Brew is sponsored by Big Red Construction and we estimated that there will be more than 300 Big Brew events being held - mainly on construction sites and at builders’ merchants across the UK. 

You can join this year’s conversation at #GiveYourselfABreak. 

The first Big Brew in October 2021 saw more than 170 events take place across the UK and raised enough money to fund a new, free, construction industry-only counselling service for the next two years.  

What’s new for this year’s Big Brew?

There are two exciting new developments that we’re introducing for this year’s Big Brew. 

The first is the launch of a new text line service that tradespeople can contact at any time to get support. They can reach out 24-hours a day by texting BOB to 85258. 

The other is the new tea scale. It’s a new way to help tradespeople start conversations by asking others “where are you at on the mental health tea scale?”
