Kilmarnock Station Railway Heritage Trust was formed in 2014 to bring a number of redundant railway offices into community use. 


The first phase of the refurbishment project was completed in August 2015, creating bright modern facilities, which offer office space and meeting rooms used by a range of local groups, as well as a coffee shop and book shop. Other renovated rooms house the Glasgow & South Western Railway Association archives and the Active Travel Hub.


The charity offers volunteering and training opportunities for people affected by addiction, mental health issues, loneliness and isolation, as well as providing rehabilitation opportunities for ex-offenders.

In addition our Moving On Project supports individuals in the community affected by social isolation to recover, rediscover skills and interests, and re-connect with those around them. It is funded by the Big Lottery and the Robertson Trust.

The Trust aims to support the local community by encouraging groups and individuals to utilise the renovated spaces at the station for the benefit of the whole community. The KSRHT facilities host everything from art exhibitions and creative classes, to tai-chi, meditation, yoga and even charity comedy nights. In 2015, the Trust won the SURF Awards for Regeneration and was shortlisted for the EPIC Awards for Creative Arts.
