Govia Thameslink Railway offers more free train travel to victims fleeing domestic abuse
Published: 08 Dec 2020
Govia Thameslink Railway is supporting an extended nationwide initiative to help domestic abuse victims reach refuge accommodation by offering free train travel.
Govia Thameslink Railway's Chief Operating Officer Steve White said: "With the numbers of survivors of domestic abuse soaring during the pandemic, charities are expecting a surge in people trying to escape to a refuge when lockdown restrictions relax. Abusers frequently withhold money, which is why the free train travel we offer as an industry is so vitally important for the hundreds of victims making use of this scheme."
