ACoRP – the Association of Community Rail Partnerships – is the membership body for almost 50 CRPs (community rail partnerships), representing over 80 community rail lines across the UK, as well as more than 1,000 station adoption groups.
Acting as the conduit between our members, national and local government and the rail industry, our role is to provide support, advice and guidance on developing community rail initiatives at grass-roots level. At the same time, we promote community rail at a strategic level and work closely with decision-makers to embed the concept in national planning.
