• Arriva Trains Wales Community Partnerships

    Being a valued partner in the community is one of Arriva’s key Corporate Social Responsibility objectives. 

    Through our employee sponsorship scheme, we support organisations that our employees value and are relevant to our business.  Presently, the business' focus is on supporting activities involving people with a disability or the environment.

    External organisations and individuals are supported with in-kind sponsorship where mutually beneficial relationships can be formed.  We also like to get practically involved in the communtiy by developing close links with schools, charities and local authorities.
