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 70% of construction costs

Delivering safer, more attractive walking and cycling routes for everyone

Apply for funding

Increasing demand for high quality walking, wheeling and cycling routes and the creation of hundreds of temporary measures to allow for physical distancing during the pandemic means that our fund is currently oversubscribed. We are focusing on making sure our current projects are fully funded to completion and we do not expect to be able to accept new applications for new projects until 2022.

Current partners can log into our online grant application portal to review previous applications or on-going projects.

Details on the application process for 2020-21 and the structure of the programme found in the 2020-21 Application Guidance.

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. Please contact us for details of the latest deadlines and the next award round.
