Road Safety Trust small grants
The Road Safety Trust small grants programme is open for applications. Charities and not-for-profit social enterprises can apply for grants of £10,000 to £30,000 for a pilot, trial or evaluation of a practical road safety intervention that supports local priorities for casualty reduction.
All projects should have other sources of funding, either cash or in-kind.
Each application should have a lead organisation which must be a UK local public sector organisation or a UK-based registered charity, not-for-profit social enterprise or community interest company. An element of partnership working is expected in all projects.
Applications will be assessed against how well they meet the following criteria:
- “The project is for a pilot, trial or evaluation of a practical road safety intervention.
- Has a clear objective/purpose and a clear expression of who it is aimed at and how it will improve road safety for public benefit.
- Supports local priorities for casualty reduction.
- Supports the objectives of our grant programme.
- Has a clear method, plan and timeline.
- Demonstrates knowledge of relevant practice (eg. has it been trialled elsewhere and what were the results?).
- Demonstrates knowledge of relevant regulations and guidance as appropriate.
- Outlines sound management of the project and experience of the project team and partners.
- Encompasses partnership working and collaboration.
- Details financial aspects and budget including additional sources of funding.
- Covers ethical and privacy issues.”
