EFL focus on National Rail Safety Week

Continuation of partnership to tackle increase in railway risk takers

26 June 2019

On National Rail Safety Week, young people have been reminded of an EFL partnership with Network Rail and the British Transport Police (BTP) to help tackle the increasing number of people risking their lives on the railway. Brentford FC will be part of the project that will help to educate and raise awareness of the dangers of the railway network to young people.

The ‘You vs. Train’ campaign launched last year by the rail industry and British Transport Police saw incidents involving children reduce by 12 per cent, but this vulnerable group continue to be at high risk. Responding to the continued problem, the industry’s railway trespass group has this year launched a new phase of the You vs. Train campaign, forming partnerships with the EFL Trust and StreetGames to drive the rail safety message directly to this hard-to-reach group. The campaign is back in focus this week.
