From cross-promotional leaflets to signage projects to online collaborations, by working together with like-minded organisations we have been able to achieve more and have been recognised with national awards.
These projects complement the work of our core partnership – which brings together the railway, Devon County Council, Cornwall Council, Plymouth City Council and Plymouth University, which hosts the Partnership team. This breadth of core partners makes us well-placed in our work to promote two-way communication between the community and the rail industry.
We also play a role within the national community rail sector. The manager of the Devon and Cornwall Rail Partnership, Richard Burningham, is a board member of the Association of Community Rail Partnerships (ACoRP), and through our EU Citizens’ Rail project we founded the Community Rail Cafe, a national network to promote discussion and best practice within the sector.
