Lindsay Fox AC

“I am honoured to be the founding Patron for the Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds Foundation.

Mental health and wellbeing has always been, and remains, a strong passion of mine.

I’ve seen the impacts mental health can have on people in our industry, and I know it’s time we speak up on this issue as much as we have done on safety.

The Healthy Heads in Trucks & Sheds Foundation is committed to creating mental health and wellbeing initiatives that support drivers and warehousing teams across the national road and logistics sector.”
