The Road Safety Trust
Our grant themes
From 2019, each round of funding available from the Road Safety Trust will have its own theme. There are two rounds of grants per year:
Major themed grants open for applications between February and May
Smaller grants, not necessarily linked to the main theme, are open for applications between September and December. More information about the Small Grants Programme becomes available over the summer
Major themed grants
We expect the projects funded by the Road Safety Trust to focus on engineering, infrastructure and technological measures, while recognising the contribution of education and enforcement to these measures.
The main objective of any project should always be to help protect vulnerable road users. Funding is available for a maximum of three years. We are committing to funding projects which:
Generate new knowledge about what works
Translate ideas into new measures
Influence Road Safety Policy and Practice
Support partnership working or collaboration
Eligible projects might include evidence reviews, trials, roll-outs, evaluations and support for the profession through guidance or other resources.

An additional funding opportunity, the ‘Small Grants Programme’, will be open from September until the end of December this year and in subsequent years. It is expected that awards through the Small Grants Programme will be between £10,000 and £30,000 per project.
