We don’t know what the future is going to look like, we couldn’t have predicted how the world would unfold through the impact of technology or the spread of COVID-19 and what effect it would have on people’s lives.

That’s why the gifts people leave us in their Wills are so important. They mean we can continue to face new challenges and deliver our vital services to help with the mental health and well-being of rail workers and the public affected by the rail operations.

For almost 140 years, donations have come to us from people who have decided to pass something on to the next generation through their will.

We're here to support the Railway Family through life's 'ups and downs'. Every day more people need our help, and so we ask that after you've taken care of the people closest to you, a gift in your will could help us be there for the next generation of railway staff.

A legacy gift will go towards transforming lives:


Every day, people face struggles and trials. Your chaplains are there to help and are available to offer 'support on life's journey' 


Railway fatalities affect so many people, from the individual and their loved ones to the train driver, emergency services and witnesses


Railway Mission is a Christian charity, as such, we are always happy to share our faith with anyone who asks what we believe

Thank You

Leaving a gift in your Will is a big decision. But it’s one that makes a very real and lasting difference to the lives of people touched by your chaplains, long into the future.

Once you’ve looked after your loved ones in your Will,
leaving a gift to Railway Mission Charity helps us continue to develop the support we provide and help preserve the mental, physical, and spiritual wellbeing of railway staff and members of the public affected by rail operations.

It is thanks to our supporters that Railway Mission can change the lives of countless railway staff every year.
But, as more people are needing our support and our understanding, as the complexity of modern life increases, we need to continue reaching out to people and offering the support they need to meet the challenges of modern life. 

This is why we need your support more than ever. Your gift will help us make a vital difference in the lives of rail staff from the north of Scotland to the south of England, from the Welsh coast to east coast of England.
