What is a Station Partnership?
A station partnership is a commitment between Southern and a local group, individual or company to undertake projects at a station for the benefit of the local community, passengers and Southern stations.
Station partnerships vary in format but the common theme is voluntary community involvement. Broadly, partnerships cover four main types of activity:
- working at stations to improve the environment e.g. tending gardens or providing community art work
- reinstating redundant buildings or rooms at stations for community use
- commercial sponsorship by a local group or business, or
- station presentation checks.
We work with the Sussex Community Rail Partnership (sussexcrp.org) on this project.

Network Rail land
Network Rail operates its own volunteer scheme on railway land and this may be complementary at some stations. Details of the Network Rail scheme are available on their website under ‘Community & Environment’ or by clicking on this link - Network Rail volunteer scheme.
