Rail Asset Development’s Charity Partner for 2019/20

RAD are pleased to announce that for 2019/20 we have decided to partner with the Railway Children charity ( https://www.railwaychildren.org.uk/ )

Railway Children say “we fight for vulnerable children who live
alone at risk on the streets, where they suffer abuse
and exploitation. In the UK, society often denies their
existence, and in other countries the problem is so
prevalent that it has become ‘normal’.

They run away or are forced to leave homes where they
suffer poverty, violence, abuse and neglect. They
find themselves living on the streets because there
is nowhere else to go and no one left to turn to. The
problems they face on the streets are often even worse
than those they endured at home. Every day we fight to
change their story.

Railway Children aim to reach children as soon as they
arrive on the streets and intervene before an abuser
can. Our pioneering work enables us to get to street
children before the streets get to them.”
