Through our community investment, we support projects across our network that address an area of social need and benefit local communities.

Along with most train companies in England, we have entered into an Emergency Measures Agreement with the Department for Transport (DfT) and they are currently reviewing our plans for community investment in 2021/22.

Community Investment Programmes

Great Western Railway’s community investment programmes support projects that have a community benefit or address an area of social need across our network.

Over the 2021/22 financial year we plan to allocate over £500,000 across two programmes to support the communities we serve.

The programmes have been specially selected and fall into two key areas:

1. Communities and Education Programme

2. Community Cohesion Programme

Please note these programmes are now closed to bids as we have reached our investment limit for this financial year.
