As a mode of transport rail provides a social good, serving mobility needs to connect communities, people and business. It has an impact at national, regional and local level and is crucial for socio-economic prosperity and the wellbeing of the communities it serves. Social impacts also span areas such as community engagement and volunteering, and environmental aspects. Through a better understanding of local, regional and national issues the industry can maximise its social impact to build knowledge and skills in these areas. Through our research we plan to provide the industry with the knowledge and tools to do so.
