What we fund

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.

Each organisation can submit up to three applications in the 2020 WCGL funding round. Each application needs to meet the eligibility and evaluation criteria. Please note that whilst it is possible to apply for three grants per organisation, it may not always be possible to fund multiple applications from the same group.

Applications are judged against the scoring criteria set. Funding through WCGL 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
