Looking out for MATES

MATES in Construction

Converge International were proud to partner with MATES in Construction at their annual Charity Lunch last week.


MATES in Construction is a charity that promotes the health and wellbeing of construction workers and their families. The support of this fundraising event will make a significant difference to each and every MATES in Construction service user.


Queensland is now leading the way in reducing the rates of suicide in the Australian construction industry. 

Since the commencement of the MATES in Construction program in 2008, the rate of suicide has fallen by nearly 8%. 


MATES in Construction provide vital work: every second day we lose an Australian construction worker to suicide. This statistic indicates that there is still so much work to be done.


Converge is proud to be partnering with MATES in Construction to support Queensland construction workers who require specialist counselling support.
