The government recognises the important role that Community Rail Network plays in helping to deliver strategic outcomes and is a key funder of the organisation.

Through its funding arrangements with train operating companies, the government continues to provide improved outcomes for passengers, better value for the taxpayer, and drive economic, social, and environmental benefit for the country, it will also continue to support community rail organisations to flourish as inclusive, independent, and sustainable groups so they are well placed to deliver the strategy’s key pillars:

  • providing a voice for the community
  • promoting sustainable, healthy, and accessible travel
  • bringing communities together and supporting diversity and inclusion
  • supporting social and economic development
