Benefit Fund

Supporting Railway People

The Railway’s Charity

The Railway Benefit Fund, also known as RBF, is a charity which provides support to current, former and retired railway people and their families across the UK.

We offer help to those who need us. From financial grants and confidential advice, to online tools and a legal helpline, we provide a range of services designed to support you through life’s unexpected events.

Our assistance extends not just to those working in passenger rail, but also to the wider rail supply chain as well as freight and ancillary services.

How We Can Help

If you are experiencing financial difficulties, our non-repayable grants provide financial support to improve circumstances and aid wellbeing.

In addition we provide confidential advice, online tools, a legal helpline and a range of services and knowledge to support you, and your family, through life’s unexpected events.


How You Can Help

When you support the RBF you are helping to make a real difference to people’s lives.

There are many ways in which you can get involved as an individual or organisation, such as fundraising, volunteering or becoming a corporate partner. Support the railway industry together so we can be there for the Railway Family when they need us.
