Become a Peer Support Crew Member

Train Crew are at risk of being exposed to a number of critical incidents, many of which can be extremely traumatic. Sydney Trains recognises that traumatic situations can have a severe impact on Train Crew and affect their sense of physical and emotional wellbeing and their ability to perform their role.
