The Department aims to ensure that the welfare and wellbeing of all of our hard-working front-line staff remains at the forefront of industry planning and thinking.

Working with representatives from across the rail industry, the Department has commissioned an industry-wide study, to bring together existing best practice and provide recommendations on supporting positive mental health. The study, led by Great Western Railway, working with a cross-industry group, Samaritans and Mental Health at Work, is currently underway and will be shared with the rail industry.
