Community Active Travel Grants

News story posted: 04/06/2018

Paths for All is offering small grants of up to £3000 to communities in Scotland to develop, deliver and promote their own community led active travel projects.


The Community Active Travel Grants aim to empower communities to make changes to paths in their area that will make it easier for people to make every day journeys by active travel. Increasing active travel in communities helps to create a healthier, socially inclusive, economically vibrant, environmentally friendly Scotland.


What can the grant be used for?

The grant can be used for a number of things but must make it easier for people to walk and cycle when making short everyday journeys.

We will give priority to projects that


  • Improve paths so it’s easier for people to use them and be more physically active
  • Show people where active travel routes are
  • Provide opportunities and encourage people in communities to work together


The grant will fund active travel routes to schools, to places of work, other popular places within towns and routes that help connect communities.


Who can apply?

The grant scheme is open to any constituted community group in Scotland who have their own bank account. Community organisations and registered community charities such as community councils, development trusts and community woodland groups can also apply.


Applications can be made by clicking the link below and completing an expression of interest form. The deadline for expression of interest is 6 July 2018.
