Waltham Forest Council’s Enjoy Waltham Forest programme has launched a £20,000 fund for local community projects which will encourage residents to be more active, build stronger communities and promote sustainable transport options.
The aim of the Community Walking and Cycling Fund is to support innovative projects that will enable more people in Waltham Forest to walk and cycle, in turn creating healthier and happier communities. Your project could be to get people and communities to walk together, create opportunities for residents to learn to ride or maintain a cycle, or bring to life an idea which will make cycling and/or walking attractive and fun modes of transport.
The fund can be used to pay for equipment, tools, kits, training and activities. Up to 20% of your application amount can be allocated to project management costs. If you are unsure if your idea can be funded, you should contact the team or attend one of the drop-in sessions.
Projects are expected to start in April 2019 and end by October 2019.
Two drop-in support sessions will be held:
Venue: Reception Room E, Waltham Forest Town Hall, Forest Road, E17 4JF
Monday 18 February 2019 - 5pm to 7pm
Friday 1 March 2019 - 10am to 12pm
Deadline: 5pm Friday 15 March
