About us

Southeast Communities Rail Partnership is an independent community interest partnership which works with local communities to encourage people to travel by train and to engage in their local railway

What we do

SCRP works with local communities to:


• Engage with transport operators to help improve local rail services

• Organise projects that give the community a sense of ownership and pride in their railway stations and create a safe and welcoming place

• Encourage rural tourism and help to support local economies

• Work with schools and local councils to give young people the skills to travel safely and independently by train

• Encourage healthy, sustainable and accessible travel

• Produce award-winning guides to the train lines and local attractions


Our principal partners and funders are Southern, Great Western Railway, East and West Sussex County Councils, Surrey County Council and Kent County Council, Gatwick Airport and Network Rail. Our station improvement projects are delivered with the assistance of many volunteers, schools, businesses and local councils.


Our vision for community rail is that local communities become fully connected with their railway.
