Community Grant SchemeBack home

We are keen to support community and voluntary organisations that wish to encourage active lifestyles and support sustainable travel. If you are based in or near Exeter, Newton Abbot or Barnstaple we can offer funding for initiatives.

You can submit a grant application form for between 50% and 100% of the cost of the initiative. Grants are available to community and voluntary organisations located within Devon (excluding Plymouth and Torbay), that would like to:

  • Enhance or improve access to sustainable travel for individuals or group activities (for example, hiring recumbent bicycles, hiring bicycles for led rides or holding ‘fix your bike’ sessions)
  • Develop and expand local walking or cycling maps
  • Increase participation or the number of members in led walks or rides (for example, walking groups, family cycle rides or other active travel activities such as walking buses to schools or sports clubs)
  • Fund innovations or new events requiring initial support (i.e. regular community Dr Bike sessions and cycle to work clubs)
  • and more..

This grants scheme, managed by Travel Devon and Devon County Council, seeks applications from charitable, community and voluntary groups in support of active travel and wellbeing. Schemes should contribute to the aims of Devon County Council’s Access Fund bid and subsequent programme of projects.
