Sussex Community Rail Partnership works to reconnect the community with all its railway. The Partnership draws together local authorities, railway companies, Network Rail, Passenger Focus and the local communities to improve the facilities and usage of local railways. Click here to find out details about our company, partners and work.
SCRP provide information and organise events that encourage the local community to get involved with their railway, especially through station partnerships. We produce and distribute award winning line guides for tourists and local communities which show the attractions and services available at stations and in cities, towns and villages served by our lines. We offer young people workshops in accessing the railway and in using timetables, buying tickets and travelling safely and responsibly on trains. We work with local groups and individuals to bring redundant railway land and buildings back to life and we link local authorities with the rail company to provide improved facilities at stations such as cycle stores and CCTV. We also work with transport providers to improve local access to stations by public and community transport and with local authorities to improve access by walking, cycling and where necessary by car.
One of the ways which you can get involved with our work is by volunteering either within a Station Partnership or as a volunteer with the Community Rail Partnership. Click here for more information.
