Help change lives and make a real difference

Every 4 minutes someone in rail reaches out to RBF for support and guidance. Last year alone, over 1,000 rail families benefitted from direct financial support from the RBF.

Making a difference to the lives of railway people is only possible thanks to the generous fundraising and donations we receive from our supporters. Your support, however big or small, enables us to be there for the Railway Family through times of need.

The Difference your Donation Makes

£25 could fund the cost of the RBF legal helpline for one hour.

£50 could fund new school shoes for a child whose parents are struggling to make ends meet.

£100 could fund support with increasing energy bills for a family struggling with debt.

£500 could fund the deposit on a rented flat for an apprentice on the brink of homelessness.
