The Severnside Community Rail Partnership cic is a not for profit company championing the role of the railway in the community and the role of community in their local railway. We are members of the national Community Rail Network and deliver projects to provide a voice for the community, promote sustainable, healthy travel, to bring communities together and support diversity and inclusion and to support the local economy.
We welcome volunteers of all ages and backgrounds and have a range of opportunities including:
• enhancing local station environments through horticulture and food growing
• helping people from marginalised groups gain confidence in using public transport
• supporting community events, both on and off the rails
• providing digital content for websites and social media
Volunteers often develop new skills, experience an improved sense of well-being, and new friendships forged.
The Partnership actively encourages young people to become involved with community rail and has facilitated bespoke volunteering programmes to align with apprenticeship programmes, the Duke of Edinburgh Award Scheme and the National Citizenship Scheme
In this role you'll get plenty of experience writing up short and snappy pieces about what goes on across our network.
Volunteering in this role will ensure our organisation is able to connect and communicate with visitors to our sites/social media, our partners and our volunteer base.
