New funding announced in response to the impact COVID‐19 has had on UK roads for charities, local authorities, and community groups.
Road Safety Trust, a charity dedicated to making the UK’s roads the safest in the world, will open its Small Grants Plus Programme to applications on 15th September for five weeks, that respond to changing road use and emerging road safety issues as a result of the COVID‐19 pandemic. Eligible
projects are pilots or trials, an expansion of successful trials across a new area, and/or the evaluation of road safety interventions.
The total value of the fund is £300k with each project being awarded between £20k and £50k.
Each application should have a UK lead organisation which must be local public sector, charity, not‐for‐profit social enterprise or community interest company. Universities can also apply but they must have a partner from one of these organisations as a lead. An element of partnership working is expected in all projects.
The Small Grants Programme will be open for applications from 15th September until 21st October. For more information visit: https://roadsafetytrust.org.uk/
