Road Safety Trust Accepting Small Grants Applications


04 April 2023/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding to support the goal of improving road safety at a local level.

Public and non-profit organisations across the UK can now apply for the 2023 funding round of Road Safety Small Grants.

This year, funding of £10,000 to £50,000 for up to 24 months is available.

Applications are accepted from local authorities, police forces, fire and rescue services or UK based registered charities, legally constituted not-for-profit social enterprises or community interest companies.

Eligible projects include 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.

The Small Grants programme is focused on practical projects, rather than research.

Requests for 100% project costs will not be eligible. All projects should have other sources of funding, either cash or in-kind. This contribution can come from the applicant or other partners

Groups can book a 1:1 slot with the Grants Team for 6 April 2023.

The deadline to apply is 4 May 2023.


How To Apply

There are two application windows per year:

  • The Small Grants Programme is open until 5 May 2023.
  • The Main Themed Grants Programme is now closed for applications.

Guidance notes and FAQs can be found on the Trust's website.
