Funding for Children's Cycle Training in England

24 September 2021/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

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

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

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.

Awards of up to £75,000 are available.

How To Apply

Applications must be submitted by the deadline of 29 October 2021 (5pm).

Further guidance and an application form are available on the Bikeability Trust website.
