Funding available for community rail and station adoption projects on EMR network

East Midlands Railway (EMR) is inviting community groups to bid for funding having launched its £200,000 Community Fund.

The fund aims to support communities and organisations along the routes that EMR serve and is designed to inspire projects that make a difference to those that need it most.

The money is available to community rail partnerships, station adoption groups, charities, community interest companies, schools, youth organisations, sports clubs, not for profits, and groups such as Beavers or Guides.

To qualify, the group or organisation must operate within 15km of an EMR station and successfully meet the requirements of funding set out by EMR.

Kaye Robinson, community engagement manager at East Midlands Railway, said: “The Community Fund is a great opportunity for worthwhile projects across our region to apply for much needed support.

“If your charity, group or club is in need of support or have some worthwhile projects that need a financial helping hand – please don’t hesitate to get in touch.”

Applications will be considered on a rolling basis.

For more information and to submit an application, visit the East Midlands Railway website.
