Railway Children's Waterloo Station Sleepout 30th January 2020

Railway Children’s Waterloo Station Sleepout 30th January

As we enter 2020, our UK office team members Alisha Maher, Gary O’Keeffe, Harry Loft, Liam Cain, and Sara McLaughlin will be taking part in Railway Children’s Sleepout at Waterloo Station.

The event will see them swap their warm beds on the night of 30th January for sleeping bags and the cold floor of a railway station.

“This event isn’t designed to replicate the situations faced by the children we work with, but it will raise awareness of the issues and we know that the more we can do that, more we can do, together, to make a difference in the lives of children who need us.”

Why we’re taking part

As a leading rail recruitment agency, we have a duty to give back and support those less fortunate within the rail community. When children and young people run away from home, their first thought is often to escape or hide on the trains. As temporary safety and warmth, they use trains or stations to seek shelter. These children are vulnerable. Thousands of them are passing through our railway stations every day, facing risks of exploitation, trafficking, and abuse.

That’s why in 2020 we’ve decided to support Railway Children. If the rail industry can come together and contribute a small amount of time or money to this cause, we can help eradicate child exploitation in our railway system.

How you can make a difference

Anything can make a difference, and support our goal of raising £500 during this event online at https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/crewit-resourcing.

Together, £500 could pay for 25 hours of one-to-one support to help a child keep themselves safe. Be part of the solution during the coldest time of year.

About Railway Children

“We believe in a world where no child ever has to live on the streets. Children run away or are forced to leave homes where they suffer poverty, violence, abuse, and neglect. They find themselves living on the streets because there is nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to. We work to reach children as soon as they arrive on the streets and intervene before an abuser can.” You can find out more on their website: railwaychildren.org.uk

Crewit Resourcing 2020 Charities

Announcing Crewit Resourcing UK and Ireland 2020 Charities

Our UK and Ireland offices are pleased to announce that we will be supporting Railway Children in the UK and Temple Street Foundation in Ireland.

These charities have been chosen as they make an active difference to the next generation and impact the lives of people in the areas that we operate in.

About Railway Children (UK)

“We provide protection and opportunity for children with nowhere else to go and nobody to turn to.

Every year thousands of children across the UK, India and East Africa run away or are forced to leave homes that have become unbearable through poverty, abuse, violence and neglect.

Reaching a child as soon as possible is crucial to getting to children on the streets before an abuser can, and before they become entrenched in street life. We race to get to children before the streets get to them.”- www.railwaychildren.org.uk

About Temple Street Foundation (Dublin)

“Here in Temple Street Foundation, our aim is to support the life-saving work of Temple Street Children’s Hospital and ensure that our little patients receive the world-class treatment they need and deserve.

Our mission is to provide every sick child in Ireland with the highest standard of medical care by ensuring they and their families have immediate access to the best facilities, the finest research and the most compassionate loving support.”- www.templestreet.ie

Our 2020 Commitment

We believe that, as a business, we have a duty to give back to our community. Therefore, in 2020 our teams in the UK and Ireland will be supporting the charities in multiple events across the year. Ranging from small, office-based events, to large-scale events that engage our whole network of businesses, we’ve got some exciting announcements coming in the next few months.
