Railway Mission is a Christian faith-based charity offering independent, confidential, impartial pastoral care to the railway community and members of the public affected by rail operations. COVID and the Cost-of-Living crisis have put extra pressure on everyone over the last few years. Nevertheless, our regionally-based chaplains aim to be impartial ‘friends’ for those who work on the railways. Regardless of faith, gender, sexual orientation, or position in the industry, our chaplains offer face-to-face year around support, especially during an individual’s time of loneliness, stress, depression, bereavement, or illness. Rail staff approach our chaplains for support through these difficult times as a friend and colleagues, rather than phone a stranger to receive counselling support to talk through personal difficulties. But railway chaplains have also supported railway staff and police in the aftermath of the terrorist attacks of recent years and were also present following the Grenfell Tower fire and the Stonehaven derailment, a fatal railway accident that occurred in August 2020 and other tragic incidents.
