It has been a very good year – read our Annual Review 2021


SCRP Annual Review 2021

We have published our annual review for 2021. As with many organisations, 2021 was a challenging year for Community Rail but I hope you will see from the examples in our annual review that the Southeast Communities Rail Partnership CIC was able to deliver a number of successful projects collaborating with community groups and partners. We were incredibly pleased that at the national community rail awards in December 2021, to win “The Outstanding Contribution to  Community Rail “  award jointly with the Friends of Buxton Station . We were placed in every category we entered, recognising the many contributions from volunteers and the role played by our staff in connecting communities to their railway.


The SCRP is now working with local community groups and partners on a range projects and events as we recover from the impact of COVID. Our education work continues to grow and matches the demand from schools for lessons on the environment and low carbon travel.

Recently you will have seen our contribution to Community Rail week “Give the Train a Try” with SCRP hosting many marginalised groups accessing train travel for the first time. Our celebrations to mark the Platinum Jubilee will feature in future reports, having secured grant funding for many community art and social events to go ahead.

I hope you enjoy reading the report and learning about the added value that community rail brings to train travel. Thank you for all your support throughout the year and we look forward to working together in 2022. Click the link below to go to our annual reports.
