Interested in gaining funding for active travel but unsure where to start?

This online workshop, recorded on 9th February 2022, offered staff within NHS Scotland the chance to find out all there is to know about funding programmes to improve facilities for walking and cycling.

Watch the recording to hear directly from Sustrans NHS Active Travel Embedded Officers from several Boards on their lessons learned and best tips for writing applications.

We were also joined by partners from Cycling Scotland, Energy Saving Trust, and TravelKnowHow Scotland who presented their various funding offers.

Facilitating active travel brings so many benefits to colleagues. But knowing where to look for funding to make this happen can be less clear, especially with limited time and capacity.

This workshop aimed to demystify the funding process and offer some inspiration from success stories across NHS Scotland.

Our Get into Gear workshops provide a timely opportunity to think about how we can find joy and breathing space in making our everyday journeys more active and environmentally friendly.

The purpose of the Sustrans Workplace Engagement Programme is to increase active and sustainable travel of NHS Scotland staff, creating a culture where this is normalised.
