What we fund

Walking and Cycling Grants London

WCGL funds grants of up to £10,000 over three years to community groups and organisations, to create projects and programmes that allow all communities across London to enjoy the benefits of walking and cycling.

We work with groups whose participants need encouragement and support to get them walking and cycling.

Type of grants

Organisations can apply for up to £10,000 for projects that run for up to three years:

· year one – up to £5,000

· year two – up to £3,000

· year three – up to £2,000

You can only apply for year two and year three grants at the same time as the year one grant.

At the end of each year, we assess your project to decide whether agreed outcomes or targets were achieved. Funding for years two and three will be released when targets have been met.


Community Ideas Grants

The Community Ideas Grants fund grants of up to £5,000 for one year projects to smaller community groups, charities and social enterprises who may not have applied for a grant or run a community project before. You can pick from a template list of previously successful walking or cycling project ideas to run in your community, and will receive more support throughout the application and project delivery period.

Type of grant

Organisations can apply for up to £5,000 for projects that run over one year. At the end of the delivery year you can either continue your project based on your sustainability plan, or apply for top-up funding for further years, where your project would then become part of the Walking and Cycling Grants London scheme. 

Applications are judged against the scoring criteria set. Funding is limited so we urge applicants to consider whether they need to submit more than one, as we aim to support as many organisations as possible. For advice and guidance contact the grants administrators at
