LNER and CALM join forces to talk about the impact of suicide on the rail industry

26/10/18

We are proud to announce our new partnership with the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), looking at the impact of suicide on those working in the rail industry.

Following a number of fundraising events across the east coast mainline to support CALM, we wanted to make supporting CALM even easier by allowing you to donate your compensation through our Delay Repay scheme.

We launched this new initiative on World Mental Health Day (10 October). Simon Gunning, CEO of the Campaign Against Living Miserably (CALM), said: “LNER are taking steps to support their staff, their customers and all that use their network, so we’re delighted to be partnering with them. Suicide affects thousands of people every year and remains the single biggest killer of men under 45 in the UK, and the work that LNER are doing to change this is commendable. I believe the CALM and LNER partnership will start plenty of conversations – some of which might just be lifesaving.” 


In partnership with CALM, we hope that the video will make more people think about the unseen impact of suicide and spread awareness of the support on offer. Find out more about our partnership with CALM.
