Community Rail Week - members toolkit

Community Rail Week returns 20 to 26 May 2024 with the theme of ‘More Than A Railway’ and we’re encouraging everyone to get involved! Find out more about the theme along with suggestions of how to get involved here.

The campaign week can be a great opportunity to shine a spotlight on the vital work you deliver throughout the year.

To support you to do this, we’ve produced a range of digital tools to help amplify your local messages while linking in with our national campaign messages.

For further support, get in touch with our Comms team here.
