Road safety partnership grant scheme

To further support local highway authorities in delivering casualty reduction targets locally, an annual £4million Road Safety Partnership Grant Scheme was launched at the end of October 2006, inviting bids from all local highway authorities in England.

The Scheme promotes a collaborative approach to all aspects of delivering enhanced road safety. In particular it aims to encourage partnerships between traditional road safety professionals and other service providers including the education sector, the health sector, the fire service, the youth service and the voluntary sector. It also hopes to stimulate road safety schemes which produce environmental and regeneration benefits.

The focus of the grant may change depending on road safety priorities each year.
