places for everyone

Sustrans Scotland’s Places for Everyone Programme provides advice, support and funding for the creation of safe, attractive, healthier places that increase the number of trips made by walking, cycling and wheeling for everyday journeys.

The programme is funded by the Scottish Government through Transport Scotland.

apply to places for everyone

Applicants to our Places for Everyone programme receive direct access to our knowledge and experience and benefit from our partnership approach to projects. This collaborative way of working helps ensure the projects we’re involved with achieve the best possible outcomes for communities across Scotland.

We provide support at any stage in a project’s development. However we encourage projects to express an interest in Places for Everyone as early as possible, so we can help guide you through the process.

Community Groups and Development Trusts can receive support to help manage infrastructure design and construction

We provide support throughout the whole of your project, from application enquiries to developing a maintenance strategy

We can award 100% of design costs and 50% of construction costs

Delivering safer, more attractive walking and cycling routes for everyone

We encourage applications from public and third sector organisations that can demonstrate an ability to deliver and maintain the infrastructure for which they are applying.

Places for Everyone funding is awarded quarterly. The next cut off for the steering group is 15th November 2019.
