A national need to inspire and support the next generation!

Hundreds of thousands of skilled roles across the UK's industries will need replacing over the next decade, as reported by the Royal Academy of Engineering in 2017 and the All-Party Parliamentary Group on heritage Railways in 2018.

The COVID-19 pandemic has further disrupted the learning, social and personal development of young people. The impact on society, from the employment, to the way we interact, is likely to be detrimental.

How can you help?

Together we can help inspire more young people to take up careers associated with engineering, science, and technology, while working alongside adults keen to expand their own skills and knowledge.

Donate or support our charitable activities by fundraising and promoting what we do. We will be happy to host donors who wish to visit and see our unique light railway.

2. WE PROVIDE ACTIVITIES

Young people and adults join us and participate in activities to operate and maintain our light railway. They become inspired through practical learning.

3. YOUNG PEOPLE TAKE UP CAREERS

Young people choose to take up apprenticeships or higher education to start careers in engineering, science, and technology.

We understand how important it is to support, inspire and nuture young people

  • Our light railway has existed for almost 100 years, exclusively as a tool for practical learning
  • We work alongside educational establishments, such as The Downs Malvern, to support their students
