GEM invites applications for road safety grants
Organisations including professional bodies and road safety groups are being invited to apply for funding from the GEM Road Safety Charity.
The charity provides funding for project that aim to reduce the number of people killed or seriously injured on the UK’s roads.
Previous examples of projects funded include a grant to TISPOL (The European Traffic Police Network) for its European Day Without A Road Death (Project EDWARD) – which was used to produce a selection of short safety videos and to host the inaugural seminar – and support for SERV (Service by Emergency Rider Volunteers) to help pay for advanced rider training, to help in their life-saving work of transporting blood, blood products and other urgent medical items between hospitals.
The grants are open to community groups, registered charities, foundations, professional bodies, road safety organisations, partnerships, schools and colleges whose projects demonstrate a clear road safety benefit to the wider community at a regional or national level. The current funding window for grants is open until Thursday 31 January.
