Network Rail has adopted a new strategy for its charitable efforts in a bid to develop multiple partnerships focused on a national social cause.
We’re now supporting a specific charitable theme for five years, starting with an issue that has dramatically worsened in recent years – homelessness.
Our Routes out of Homelessness campaign will aim to tackle homelessness with local and national charities across Britain, supporting some of the most vulnerable communities interacting with our railway.
The five-year focus on the cause will mean more opportunities for sustainable and meaningful partnerships in the future.
This is a significant change from our previous strategy – a Charity of Choice partnership scheme in which we work with a single charity for two years.
Rough sleeping and homelessness in Britain are increasing year on year. Data from charity St Mungo’s shows homelessness has increased by 169% since 2010 with 4,751 sleeping rough on a snap-shot night in England.
In the period of heavy snow between 26 February and 11 March last year, members of the public made more than 37,000 referrals to the St Mungo’s Street Link App, a reporting service.
