We support the community

Southeastern is proud to support the local communities in our network through partnerships, sponsorships and community outreach. We’re currently finding new ways to extend our service beyond our stations and transform lives.

The Kent Community Rail Partnership (Kent CRP) exists to bring together widely varied partners in order to provide social, economic and environmental benefits to the communities served by rural and secondary rail services. The partnership covers the Swale Line Sheerness-on-sea to Sittingbourne, and the Medway Valley Line Tonbridge to Strood via Maidstone West.

We have supported this important initiative for many years. In June 2015 we pledged a further £120,000 years for the three year period up to June 2018 – providing a 60% increase in funding.

Working with our local communities

Last year, we were involved with more than 80 community-led projects, helping to organise teams and provide funding or volunteer work.

Our community initiatives include:

  • Local gardening schemes at stations 
  • Adopt-a-station initiatives
  • Community noticeboards
  • Rail safety talks and tours for schools and nurseries
  • Book clubs to raise money for local charities

Art Inspiring Change 

We’re proud to have supported Turner Contemporary in 2016 as a sponsor of the ground-breaking Art Inspiring Change project.

Over an 18-month period, Art Inspiring Change will work with 80 pupils from four primary schools in Margate to lead the creative regeneration of disused areas near to their school.

Nurturing their leadership, communication and negotiation skills, Art Inspiring Change will empower young children to transform their neighbourhoods with creativity.

Poet-in-residence at Greenwich

Drawing inspiration from station life, local resident Nancy Hynes became our poet-in-residence at Greenwich. You may have already seen some of her poems on the platform billboards.
