Train operating companies, the British Transport Police and Network Rail have joined with Samaritans to remind people that we all have the potential to be lifesavers, simply by striking up a conversation.
This key message forms part of Samaritans’ latest Small Talk Saves Lives campaign, which aims to empower the public to trust their instincts and start up a conversation if they think someone needs help on the railways or in other public settings.
Over the coming weeks, Samaritans volunteers across the country will be hosting outreach events in stations around the network, speaking to passengers about the importance of small talk and busting myths to ease any concerns they may have.
