Customer and Community Investment Fund now open

Katharine Johnston

LNER’s annual £500,000 Customer and Community Investment Fund (CCIF) is now open for their next round of funding.  

The CCIF supports charities, their customers and the communities of their routes, focusing on the causes that are of key importance to them.

The core themes the fund supports are mental health, education and employability skills amongst marginalised groups, diversity and inclusion, and environmental sustainability.

They are looking for applications located within 10 – 15 miles of the east coast mainline, where there is an identified social need. Which outlines how the project will work with the community to mitigate the social need and therefore help to create a more inclusive, prosperous and connected community.

The application window for this funding round will be open until 31st July 2022.
