The latest Transform Grants Fund is now live with more than £50,000 of funding for community and environmental projects available.

As part of the scheme, which has been launched by train company TransPennine Express (TPE), organisations and individuals from across the North and Scotland are being invited to apply for grants of up to £5k to help support causes across the rail network.

Applicants will have until 17:00 on 7 February 2021 to submit their entries which should be submitted via the TPE website.

Last year, the train company donated £50k to 12 recipients as part of the annual competition supporting initiatives including an outdoor adventure programme at Southgate School in West Yorkshire, a book quest project by the National Literacy Trust and a new learning centre for the Whirlow Hall Farm Trust in Lincolnshire.  

Liz Collins, Interim Managing Director for TransPennine Express commented; “I’m thrilled that the latest Transform scheme is now open for applications and would encourage organisations and individuals who need support for their plans to apply.

“The pandemic has had an enormous impact on so many people and it is key that we support initiatives and projects across our local communities.”

Transform is open to: community groups, clubs, schools, charities and anyone who permits open access to their land.

Decisions about funding will be made by both TPE colleagues and customers using the evidence and information provided.
