The Road Safety Trust (RST) has today announced a call for applications for funding.
Grants are available for research or practical interventions aimed at supporting road safety.
Full details of the grants policy and criteria can be found at https://roadsafetytrust.org.uk/road-safety-trust-grant-policy/ The closing date for applications is October 7, 2016.
To date the Road Safety Trust have funded five innovative projects, each of them unique, ranging from a research paper looking at how road safety opportunities identify and translate into tangible actions to reduce road casualties, a pilot scheme tackling tailgating, a young driver initiative using an educational app, cycle helmet assessments and a programme targeting road injury prevention.
Rob Gifford, Chief Executive of the Trust states, said: "We were absolutely delighted with the quality of the grants that we received in the first round and we are excited to see what new and innovative projects are proposed in this round.
"The Trust’s new on-line application portal makes it even easier to apply for a grant. Our main priority is to support road safety research or interventions that can reduce the numbers of those being killed and seriously injured on the roads.”
