New Funding for Local Road Safety Projects
The Road Safety Trust has opened a new small grants programme to help improve road safety at a local level.
The Road Safety Trust provides funding to public and professional UK organisations, including charities and university departments, for projects that are innovative and will enhance the knowledge and practice of the road safety community. Projects should focus on engineering, infrastructure and technological measures, while recognising the contribution of education and enforcement to these measures.
The Trust provides larger, major themed grants which focus on a different topic each year. The Trust is now offering smaller grants to improve road safety at a local level.
Eligible projects are pilots/trials, expanding successful trials across a new area, and/or the evaluation of interventions. Projects should have the potential for being brought to scale with the ultimate goal of reducing deaths and injuries both locally and across the UK.
Applications are accepted from Local Authorities, Police Forces, Fire and Rescue Services or UK-based registered charities, not-for-profit social enterprises or community interest companies.
The small grants programme offers funding of between £10,000 to £30,000 over a two-year period.
The application deadline is 20 December 2019.
