#2reachout Campaign

After our #2reachout campaign (see previous post here) we had a fantastic response with the Hashtag's and online engagement from the students at DGS!

Train's aim for the week was to let young people know of all the places and people (online and offline) they could turn to when they needed a bit of support or someone to talk to. We addressed this by starting the #2reachout campaign and also spreading a bit of awareness of the importance of being there for others and what TRAIN does to support young people especially during the holidays with lots of activities, workshops and trips!

Thanks again to EVERYONE who took part, all the students at DGS, DGS and keep up campaigning!

International dinner

On Saturday 20th January TRAIN hosted an International Meal to raise funds for TRAIN in which our Young Volunteers, Young Leaders and Young Ambassador's all took part in organising, cooking and setting up!

As we are quite an international team here at TRAIN we wanted to host an evening full of new delicious food from different corners of the globe all hand made and cooked using freshly bought ingredients! 


Many thanks to all who attended and a special mention of thanks to the Young Volunteers, Young Leaders and Young Ambassadors who helped in every aspect!

BE part of our #2reachout campaign!

Hello everyone! 

For this week only we are going into Didcot Girls' School assemblies to introduce students to TRAIN and explain a little bit about what we do here. Additionally, we will be talking about the importance of reaching out to a number of different support networks when you need some advice or someone to talk to with a TRAIN campagin to see which school year gets the most online action! 


We want to get as many of these hands (see picture) to show that no matter what the situation or who you are there are always people or organisations you can reach out to! So to highlight this we would like you to:


  • Take a selfie alone or with your mates showing your reach out hand and write- @DIDCOTtrain #2reachout


and never forget- A problem shared is a problem halved!
