Railway Family Week

Railway Family Week is a fundraising and awareness campaign organised and hosted by the Railway Benefit Fund; a charity that supports current, former, and retired railway people and their families.

Founded in 2021, Railway Family Week has a simple aim; to bring together the entire industry to raise £50,000 for the Railway Benefit Fund. This year, the week will span from 24 - 30 April, with plenty of ways to get involved in the build up to and during the week.

The last 12 months have been particularly difficult for the rail industry, and RBF have had their services called on like never before. In 2022, the charity supported over 1,000 railway people and their families with financial grants, debt advice and legal help. In addition, RBF launched a new Energy Fund to support with the cost-of-living crisis and increase in energy bills.

This was all made possible thanks to RBF's generous supporters who raised £50,000 during last year's Railway Family Week.

Your donations and fundraising make a real impact to the lives of railway people across the UK.

£25 could fund the cost of running our legal helpline for an hour.

£50 could fund a food shop to feed a worker who has just been made redundant

£100 could fund support with increasing energy bills for a family struggling with debt.
