We give back
At Trainline, we’re innovating to make sustainable travel as simple, hassle free and affordable as possible, to benefit our customers, communities and the environment.
As our business grows, so do our opportunities to positively impact the world around us. We are passionate about communities and championing future talent, and that’s why we’ve proudly partnered with the likes of Future Frontiers, Ada Tech School, onHand and Railway Children, amongst others.
Inspiring – Future Frontiers
We believe in fulfilling potential, so over the last four years, we’ve partnered with the award-winning charity Future Frontiers. We work with it to help equip students from disadvantaged backgrounds with the information, skills and mindset to achieve their career aspirations. Since our partnership began, our teams in London and Edinburgh have mentored more than 170 secondary school students, encouraging them to dream big, explore opportunities and achieve their career aspirations.
Supporting – Railway Children
Across the world including in India, East Africa and the UK, many children are living on the streets, often finding refuge in railway stations. For many years we’ve partnered with and supported Railway Children, the charity that provides safety, protection and opportunity for these vulnerable young people. Through our fundraising activities such as sponsored runs and Christmas donations, we are keen to help Railway Children continue the fundamental work it does for some of the most vulnerable in our societies.
Educating – Ada Tech School
Tackling gender imbalance and championing talent within the tech industry are at the core of our culture and values. According to McKinsey, only 26% of women professionals are in the tech sector, and out of them only 11% are in leadership positions. Key to improving this is inspiring women to consider a career in tech from an early stage. One of our partners, Ada Tech School in Paris supports young people to become developers through a two-year apprenticeship programme. Its mission is ‘to rethink the school of computer science and engineering and promote the diversity of the sector and women in tech’.
