Community Rail Lancashire is pleased to be able to announce that along with its five constituent CRPs, it has now received official accreditation by the Department for Transport.
Accreditation is formal recognition by the DfT that the Community Rail Partnership (CRP) operates to a high standard and that its objectives and activities are supported by the Government.
Accreditation is in place to provide reassurance to others, including potential funders and partners that the CRP operates to high standards of governance and financial propriety; adopts a collaborative approach; is worthy of trust by others; and is a suitable entity for receiving public funds. Further, the Government considers the CRP a good representative of the local communities. In order to receive accreditation CRL and the CRPs have to demonstrate that they have suitable documents for which they are held accountable and these can be seen on the links below.
