A Big Brew provides an opportunity for the trades to come together over a brew.
To make discussing issues around mental health commonplace and comfortable. To raise awareness of mental health issues and improve awareness and access to
support services. The Big Brew is a great chance to have a chat and raise some
money to support mental health of everyone in the trade.
The Big Brew began as a concept by one of our support team volunteers in 2019 to use the classic 'builders tea break' to develop a mental health awareness campaign, prompted by the shocking figures around mental health in the construction industry.
As part of the campaign BoB aims to fund or provide a new range of mental health support services aimed at members of the UK construction industry and focused on supply chain companies, small businesses and the self-employed who were recently discovered to be at higher risk than those working in larger organisations.
We are encouraging every sector within the construction industry, from merchants to
small businesses, to host their own Big Brew and get the trade talking!
