We give back
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.
Inspire – Future Frontiers
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. Over the past two years, our teams in London and Edinburgh have mentored 124 secondary school students to encourage them to dream big and fulfil their future potential and we’ve also partnered on delivering career talks in local schools.
Support – Railway Children
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.
Educate – Code First Girls & Ada Tech School
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 Campaign3. 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’ve opened up the programme to women at Trainline too, so they can add new strings to their bows and learn a new skill.
Trainline also supports the newly opened Ada Tech School in France, whose goal it is to break the status quo and support more women to become developers.
Give & Gain
Every year we hold Trainline’s Give and Gain Day, where our teams in London, Edinburgh and Paris spend the day helping local communities by working with charities and not-for-profit organisations such as Thames21, Le Vestaire de Solidarités Saint-Bernard, KIDS Chelsea Playground, Surfrider Foundation with Ocean Initiatives, Spitalfields Farm and South London Cares.
On top of this, everyone who works at Trainline can take a paid day out of the office each year to work for a charity of their choice.
