Adding social value to East West Rail

Award-winning community champion Danny Miller oversees East West Rail’s employment, education and volunteering initiatives.

The East West Rail Alliance’s Social Value Manager’s work includes visiting primary and secondary schools, colleges, universities and prisons, to teach rail safety and science, technology, engineering and maths (STEM) skills, while inspiring young people to choose a career in the industry and offering local job opportunities and apprenticeships.

He is also promoting supply chain opportunities to local businesses.

The Consortium, whose membership is made up of councils with responsibility for education, community work and economic development, is working with Danny to identify opportunities, particularly how his work can benefit our hard-to-reach and disadvantaged residents.

Danny would welcome suggestions from interested parties about future opportunities. You can contact him by email:
