Tommy's and Transport for London

Working together to save more babies' lives

Transport for London logo

We’re thrilled to be partnering with Transport for London through our Pregnancy at Work programme, and have their commitment for the next three years. 

The scheme, which has been developed to enhance Transport for London's current Occupational Health offering and HR policy, will benefit around 500 pregnant employees and their line managers each year. It will arm employees with the best level of health and wellbeing support through access to Tommy’s accredited pregnancy advice, and in-house midwives.

The Tommy’s partnership was formed following research, carried our by Transport for London's Women’s Staff Network Group, which showed a need to enhance the information currently available to their pregnant employees and their managers. The Tommy’s partnership enables Transport for London to meet this need and also meet the objectives of their 100 Years of Women in Transport scheme by:

  • Helping to attract and retain more women to the industry
  • Establishing a legacy of continued improvement and development for women in the workplace
  • Building our industry's brand as an 'industry of choice' for women
  • Enhancing our reputation as an organisation fully committed to gender equality.
