Your Community. Your Fund.

Connecting railways and communities across the network.

What is Your Community, Your Fund?

'Your Community, Your Fund' is our annual scheme to inspire local people to get involved with the railway and help to enrich their local communities. The Fund supports projects across our railway network to help bring visionary community schemes to life.

How does it work?

Groups submit applications that require funding to help develop or complete projects linked to a specific station or stations that benefit communities in and around West Midlands Railway network. If successful, your scheme needs to be completed by 28 February 2025 and our dedicated team will support you to deliver the projects.

Who can apply for funding?

The scheme is open registered charities, community interest companies (CICs), community groups and other not-for-profit organisations such as community rail partnerships, schools & colleges, business partnerships, town councils and parish councils.
