We have won a £1.1 million government grant to help more residents and organisations who want to change the way they travel.
Following an announcement made on Friday 7 February by Chris Heaton-Harris, cycling and walking Minister, the funding for 2020/21 under the Department for Transport’s Access Fund will support a range of different initiatives including:
Councillor Ron Woodley, chair of the South Essex Active Travel Sponsoring Board, commented: “We are delighted that the Government has recognised the great work of ForwardMotion and provided additional funding for the initiative. This extra funding will help residents and organisations to make changes to their travel behaviours that will not only benefit themselves, but also the south Essex community and beyond.
“ForwardMotion has already worked with thousands of residents across south Essex to change the way they travel. Over the last three years, it has helped organisations encourage their employees, students and trainees to use personal travel plans, take up cycle training and has even provided infrastructure such as cycle hangars.
“We encourage anyone who is looking to change the way they travel, or who would like to encourage people within their organisation to travel differently, to get in touch and see how ForwardMotion can help.”
