Northern (Rail) Customer and Community Improvement Fund 2024

This year they will focus specifically on improving social mobility through support to access to employment and training opportunities.

They will consider proposals that will bring benefit locally across our network (which is pretty much anywhere in the north of England but check our route map if you are not sure). Projects do not need to be linked to one of our stations or have a specific connection to rail but should be delivered within 10 miles of one of our station or depot locations.

Individual grants with a value of up to £20,000, £10,000, or £2,500 are available. The total funding available is £100,000. Match funding isn’t a requirement but will be looked at favourably for schemes with a higher overall value.

Applications open 13 May 2024 and will close at 23.59 on 7 June 2024.
