Through our fund, 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).

As part of this, the DfT has reviewed our spending plans and confirmed that there will be no CCIF funding for this year.

We know this will be disappointing news. However, this is a difficult time for the nation, and we hope you will understand why the decision has been made.

It is unclear if this will have an impact on future CCIF funding, but we are keen to stay in touch. If you have any ideas or thoughts for improvements, you can email us at
