Changing lives with the Practical Participation Programme


[edit] Introduction

The Electrical Industries Charity (EIC) is giving contractors an incredible opportunity to get practical and help industry colleagues in need by signing up to the Practical Participation Programme (PPP).

PPP, which is part of the Employee Assistance Programme (EAP) and is funded by powerLottery, offers companies within the electrical sector a chance to get involved by volunteering their time, equipment and materials to provide the best practical support to people in the electrical industry.

As a partner of PPP, participants will get to work alongside the EIC and its leading partners in solving or delivering large-scale solutions and making a significant contribution to improving the lives of apprentices, employees and their families, right through to retired colleagues who need help. Once they have registered as a PPP partner, EIC will approach them on an as-needed basis to ask for their assistance.

Every year, through PPP, the charity is able to give hope for the future to hundreds of employees and their family members who are facing difficulties such as caring for an ill child or a family member, financial troubles, struggling to continue on their career path or facing life challenges during their retirement.

By signing up to become a partner of EIC’s Practical Participation Programme, participants can make a life-changing difference. So, sign up to PPP today and get practical for the industry. Alternatively, take part in the powerLottery by downloading the EIC powerLottery app and tapping the app to play.
