ACoRP’s Community Rail Awards recognise and reward the hard work and dedication of everybody involved in community rail. They also help ACoRP to understand what’s happening in community rail, its innovations and successes, so we can share good practice year-round.

Now in its 15th year, the Community Rail Awards celebrates the important and often unsung work carried out by community rail volunteers, partnerships, station friends, and community groups, in bringing local people together, running community engagement and rail accessibility initiatives, and helping communities get the most from their local railway lines and stations.
