London Underground, better known as the Tube, has 11 lines covering 402km and serving 270 stations. Opened in 1863, it is the world's oldest underground railway network, and one of the largest. We are responsible for all aspects of the Tube's operations including running the trains, stations and control centres, making sure the Tube is safe and secure, and collecting and protecting fares revenue. We are also responsible for the maintenance and renewal of most of the infrastructure used by the Tube, although some services run over track and these are the responsibility of Network Rail.

How would you describe your organisation's role in contributing to the delivery of NSPA’s outcomes to reducing suicide and improving support for those bereaved or affected by suicide?
Since 2017 we have had a dedicated team to deliver a programme in reducing suicides and increasing awareness for both customers and staff.
Support is provided to internal staff following a suicidal incident through an Occupational Health system.
What are the current challenges to delivering NSPA’s outcomes from the perspective of your organisation?
Affordability in reduction of budgets due to the governments grant change to the organisation.
A large staff base, with little room for releasing staff for training.
Large scale of complexities in preventing suicides on the tube due to volume of people in an urban environment.
