Our community exists to support one another. We do this in a variety of ways, including…

 LEGAL HELP

We provide legal advice drop in centers in cities across the country, once a month.

These operate on a strictly first come first served basis.

Our legal attorneys also provide some telephone support and limited help via our forum.

Also, see our legal advice section for an up to date rundown of the latest legislation to affect the industry.

MENTAL HEALTH SUPPORT

With above average levels of mental illness in construction workers, compared to the general population, mental health is an area which needs greater support.

We operate a telephone helpline, so asphalt contractors can get access to the help they need.

Our call handlers are trained and can refer on to relevant agencies to get more support.

We provide information about support groups and in some cases, help paying for treatment.

EDUCATIONAL BURSARIES

We have a limited number of bursaries available each year to help cover the costs of training courses.

These are always oversubscribed and we receive thousands of applications each quarter.

The deadline for the next bursaries is July 21st.

FINANCIAL HELP

We offer financial help in a range of different ways, for veteran asphalt construction workers experiencing difficulties.

How We Help

We award grants each quarter to retired and ex asphalt construction workers in financial need.

These are usually to help with home maintenance or accessing support within the community.

Older or injured asphalt professionals in need of financial support should apply for assistance as soon as possible and we will be in contact to discuss your needs in greater detail.
