Health & Social Welfare

12 April 2022/Categories: Grants_and_Funding

Funding to support innovative research and interventions in the area of road safety.

The Road Safety Trust has released details of its next major funding round, which will be based around ‘Fitness to Drive’.

Under this theme, projects may focus on the following areas:

  • Diabetes
  • Dementia
  • Sleep and fatigue
  • Illegal and prescription drug use

This programme is not restricted to older drivers and projects can be for any age group. Eligible projects can include drivers or riders of any motorised road vehicle.

UK-based organisations, public and professional associations, registered charities, and university departments may apply. For-profit organisations will be considered as long as their project is charitable.

Grants can range from £25,000 to £300,000.

The Major Grants programme sits alongside the Small Grants programme, which is currently open for applications with a deadline of 26 April 2022.

Main Themed Grants programme will open for applications from 8 September until 19 October 2022.
