ACoRP is the Association of Community Rail Partnerships

We will…

  • Use our communication channels to support the #iwill campaign, encourage our members to nominate #iwill ambassadors, and celebrate young people taking part in youth social action in the community rail movement through our online communications and events.
  • Encourage entries to our annual community rail awards that demonstrate youth social action – particularly in our category ‘Engaging children and young people’.
  • Produce guidance and encourage our members to consider offering youth social action opportunities in their organisations, recognising the role young people can play in addressing the challenges they face.
  • Work in partnership with organisations that are focused on engaging and empowering young people, to support their work and link up the community rail network with youth networks.
  • Support and encourage members to consider youth engagement as part of their planning and delivery and actively signpost members to relevant youth-focused organisations.
  • Offer dedicated workshops and sessions at member seminars around youth engagement, outcomes-orientated planning (which will consider youth social action as examples), inclusive volunteering and youth participation.

We’ve just pledged to the #iwill campaign recently – watch this space for updates on our progress


Quote from the CEO at Step Up To Serve
“The #iwill campaign is driven by leaders from across society who are committed to making youth social action a normal part of growing up in the UK.
We know that young people want to play an active part in improving their communities, and that in doing so, they develop their own skills for work and life.
With pledges helping to support the growth of youth social action, we want you to remember that it’s never too late to say #iwill. Will you be next?”
