What is Walking and Cycling Grants London?

Walking and Cycling Grants London aims to make sure all Londoners benefit from the joys of walking and cycling.

Transport for London in partnership with The London Marathon Charitable Trust are offering community grants of up to £10,000 – over 3 years – to fund projects that engage communities across London in safe, enjoyable and inclusive walking and cycling activities.

What are the programme objectives

The programme promotes walking and cycling not only as a means of transport and exercise, but also a route to greater personal freedom, better health and more cohesive communities.

The objective of the programme is to establish successful sustainable projects and strengthen community groups’ capacity for continued development. Funded projects should promote skill-sharing and partnership working to meet the individual needs of local communities, and aim to encourage more walking and cycling, more often and more safely.

Who can apply for £10,000 funding?

To be eligible for the Walking and Cycling Grants London scheme your organisation must operate within Greater London and be one of the following groups:

  • a community organisation
  • a charity or third sector organisation
  • a not for profit organisation, community interest company (CIC) or social enterprise
