Ask Questions

Think about why you are wanting to run a walking and cycling project? What problem are you trying to solve? How are you going to solve it? Who is going to be involved - the participants, the volunteers, the coordinators? Where will it take place?

Talk to the people in your community and talk to us if you have any questions


Take a look around the Community Ideas Hub, the Case Studies and the WCGL blog, and get ideas for your project from previous grant recipients.

You could use one of the Project ideas as the basis of your project


Find out how to put your project idea on the page; you'll now need to start thinking about timelines, budget, participant numbers, equipment. Look through the Community Ideas Hub project ideas for tips, and make sure you read all of the guides; Pre application information sheet; Guide to planning your project, and the Application guidelines.


Now start to flesh out your project - Look through the model application form, start to write down clear and concise answers to each question. If you not sure, contact us for help.


Now you are ready to start your application. Give yourself plenty of time before the deadline; it may take longer than you think. Ask us questions along the way if you're unsure of anything. Once completed and you're fully happy with it, submit your application. Good luck!
