New funding programme to help improve road safety at local level
Applications are now open for the Road Safety Trust’s Small Grants Funding Programme, launched to help improve road safety at a local level.
Aimed at local authorities as well as charities and community groups, the fund is offering a total of £120k, with each project to be awarded between £10k and £30k.
Projects should have a practical purpose with the aim of trialling or testing ways to improve road safety.
Sally Lines, chief executive of Road Safety Trust, said: “We are working towards a vision of zero deaths and serious injuries on UK roads. We want to make the roads safer for all users. By adding the option to apply for small grants in addition to our more extensive funding options, we hope to open up opportunities to greater numbers of organisations working in road safety.
“We are looking for measurable interventions that reflect local priorities and show a proposed link to reducing casualties either directly or through clear interim measures.”
The Small Grants Programme is open for applications until 20 December. For more information and to apply for funding, click here.
