The purpose of Walking and Cycling Grants London is to encourage London’s diverse communities to walk and cycle more often and more safely. Walking and Cycle Grants London offers grants to projects, of up to £10,000 over a three year period.
Walking is a fantastic and non-intimidating way to introduce exercise to people are particularly inactive, as well as an easy way to reduce isolation and get people involve in their local community. Cycling makes people healthier and happier and it is an affordable, green and fun way to get around and explore the city. Just ask anyone you know who currently frequently cycles! Both walking and cycling offer a range of social, health and well-being benefits which can result in Londoners living safer, happier and healthier lives.
London is fast becoming an active travel city and Walking and Cycling Grants London wants to make sure all Londoners benefit from the joys of both, regardless of their background or situation. Often people don’t take part in active travel because they lack the opportunity, information, skills, confidence or motivation to do so; or because they do not have access to a bicycle or the means to maintain it. Walking and Cycling Grants London supports community organisations that work with those who need encouragement and support to get them cycling. If you have an idea to inspire and support people in your community to cycle more often and cycle more safely, Cycling Grants London may be able to support you!
