At Trainline, we’re innovating to make sustainable travel as simple, hassle-free and affordable as possible, to benefit our customers, communities and the world’s environment. As our business grows, so do the opportunities we have to positively impact the world around us. We’re proud to partner with these charitable organisations to support, educate and inspire tomorrow’s generations.
Tackling gender imbalance and championing talent within the tech industry is at the absolute core of our culture and values. We’re proud to partner with Code First: Girls to help 20,000 young women in the UK to code, for free, by 2020 as part of the Code First: Girls’ 20:20 Campaign. As well as financial support, we’re helping to deliver the training programme by providing in-house specialists as mentors and hosting courses in our London office. We’re opening up the programme for women at Trainline too, so they can add new strings to their bows and learn a new skill.
We believe in thinking big, which is why we partner with Future Frontiers – an award-winning charity that believes all young people can be motivated by their aspirations. We work with them to help equip students from disadvantaged backgrounds with the information, skills and mindset to achieve their career aspirations. In the first year, more than 50 of our team in London and Edinburgh mentored secondary school students to encourage them to dream big and fulfil their future potential.
For many years, we’ve partnered with Railway Children, the charity that provides protection and opportunity for children living on the streets in India, East Africa and the UK, many of whom find shelter in railway stations. We support them with our internal fundraising events, including bake sales and our annual Christmas raffle.
