Bikeability Trust - Widening Participation Fund

23 September 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding available to current Bikeability training providers and organisations for innovative pilot projects that encourage underrepresented children in England to take part in cycle training.

Fund Information

Funding body:
Department for Transport (DfT)
Maximum value:
£ 75,000
Application deadline:
29/10/2021

Background

The Bikeability Trust distributes grant funding on behalf of the Department for Transport to fund Bikeability training for children in England.

The Widening Participation Fund has been established to identify children who do not currently access Bikeability and address the barriers that they face in accessing training. The fund will support innovative pilot projects that demonstrate how barriers can be overcome and participation increased within underrepresented groups. Particular focus will be given to lower uptake in areas of deprivation, and amongst specific ethnic backgrounds and female teenagers.

The fund is administered by the Trust with funding of over £1 million from the Department for Transport.

Objectives of Fund

The two key objectives of the fund are to:

  • Pilot new forms of Bikeability training with a focus on reaching every child.
  • Pilot initiatives that remove barriers to access to participating in Bikeability.

Value Notes

Awards of up to £75,000 are available.

Who Can Apply

Applications are open to current Bikeability training providers and any organisation that can increase participation.

Partnership applications are welcome.

Eligible Expenditure

Pilot projects should be able to demonstrate how they can overcome barriers and increase participation in Bikeability within the following four key areas:

  • Lower take up in areas of deprivation.
  • Low take up amongst specific ethnic backgrounds.
  • Low delivery of Level 3 Training.
  • Low participation amongst female teenagers.

Funding can be used for promoting and delivering cycle training including staff/instructor time, salaries and equipment and resources.
