Customer and Community Investment Fund

The Customer and Community Investment Fund (CCIF) is a funding scheme for community projects. The fund allows London North Eastern Railway (LNER) to work in partnership with charities, customers, and communities located along the LNER route.

Funding of up to £100,000 is available for individual projects from an overall fund of £500,000 (minimum bid £1,000).

They are looking for projects that support the key themes of:

  • Mental Health,
  • Education,
  • Employability,
  • Diversity and Inclusion,
  • Community Rail Partnerships,
  • Environment and Sustainability.

However if your project does not fall within one of these areas, they may still consider projects outside of these areas. If you have an idea you would like to run by them, please contact the CCIF inbox at
