What is it?

The Community Ideas Grants and Walking and Cycling Grants London aim 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 £5,000 over 1 year, or £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?
  • Increase walking and cycling in London (including new, lapsed or occasional cyclists)
  • Increase confidence in walking and cycling
  • Increase walking and cycling frequency
  • Make cycle ownership more accessible
  • Introduce exercise via walking and cycling to people who are particularly inactive
  • Reduce social isolation and get people involved and together in their local community
