In November 2016 the Ministry of Defence announced £2 million of funding from the Covenant Fund for a one-stop service to better support British Armed Forces veterans in need. The service responds to calls from veterans’ charities and groups for help in navigating the wide range of services and organisations set up to support those who have served in the Forces.

Please Offer Me A Seat Badge

Today we are launching the 'Please offer me a seat' badge and card for people who find it difficult to stand when using public transport. The badge and accompanying card were created following requests from customers who struggle to get a seat, as their need is not immediately obvious. The badge and card remove the awkwardness of customers having to explain their need for a seat to others.

Last autumn, we held a six week trial with 1,200 people to test the new badge and card. More than 72 per cent of journeys were found to be easier as a result of the badge, and 98 per cent of people taking part said they would recommend it to somebody who needed it.

As a result, we are now introducing the 'Please offer me a seat' initiative permanently. The free badge and card are now available through our website, at or by calling us on 0343 222 1234. There are no qualifying criteria - applicants do not need to provide a GP's note or their medical history. The badge and card can be used across our network, on London Underground, London Overground, Buses, Docklands Light Railway, TfL Rail, Trams and River Services.
