Charity offers money for road safety research


The Road Safety Trust, a road safety charity, will open its Main Theme Programme to applications on 25 February 2021.  The 2020 funding was postponed due to the COVID-19 pandemic but is being reinstated for 2021.

Local authorities are now able to apply for grants to fund projects that explore how technology can reduce road offending and improve road safety 

Grants are available for up to two or three years depending on the programme and can range from £10,000 up to £200,000.  Since it was established in 2014, the Road Safety Trust has awarded grants worth £3.7m to 49 different projects.
