HIA creates programs in line with industry concerns and developments on both local and national levels.
The HIA Charitable Foundation is committed to supporting the mental health and wellbeing of our members and the residential building industry.
A huge part of this commitment is to continue awareness and inspire action. Our latest program, the “Bucket Hat” campaign, is aimed at using the physical symbol of a specially labelled Bucket Hat, along with support material, to encourage conversations and reaching out. The HIA Charitable Foundation believe every individual deserves to not feel isolated – no matter - Where they live, work and play. More
