Road safety funding


Vision Zero South West has just launched a†£50,000†funding pot for projects and initiatives aimed specifically at improving the safety of motorcyclists in Devon & Cornwall. The road safety partnership is looking to work with communities and/or business to research, provide training or deliver projects focused on enhancing rider safety.

Motorcycle death or serious injury is a particular concern for Devon & Cornwall.† Between 2019 2021 we tragically lost 33 riders (23.5% of all fatalities) and a further 566 were seriously injured (27.5% of all serious injuries). Given that riders represent around 1% of road users overall, they are significantly overrepresented when it comes to injury.

A deep dive of stats has identified two principle areas of concern:

Age 16-24 riders on lower capacity motorcycles (under 125cc)

Age 25-69 riders on higher capacity motorcycles

If you have a project you think will help us to deliver on our vision, please complete the form on our website by following this link:†https://visionzerosouthwest.co.uk/50000-funding-available-for-motorcycle-road-safety-initiatives/.

Please feel free to forward or share this message to anyone who may be interested in putting a project forward.

Deadline for applications is†5pm on Tuesday, May 23rd.††The maximum grant is £10,000 and must be able to be complete by†31st August 2024.
