Rail to Refuge - Free train tickets for domestic abuse victims

(Addendum from ECS: This offer is open to "women, men and children seeking refuge during the lockdown", not just women as the article below might suggest.) "Rail to refuge" rolled out across all of England, Scotland and Wales

Train companies will now cover the cost of train tickets for anyone travelling to refuge accommodation while coronavirus lockdown measures are in force, in a joint initiative with Women’s Aid.

The temporary industry-wide scheme is a donation from the rail Delivery Group and follows the successful launch of similar initiatives by Southeastern and GWR prior to the coronavirus outbreak.
