TfL awards over £400,000 to fund walking and cycling schemes in London

Transport for London (TfL) has awarded more than £400,000 of grants to 60 community and not-for-profit groups that encourage local people to walk and cycle more.

The winning projects target a range of traditionally underrepresented groups such as people with physical disabilities, refugees and asylum seekers, and children with Down’s Syndrome, enabling them to feel confident while walking and cycling in London.

This is the first year TfL grants have included walking projects, with 26 of the 60 projects focusing on walking, helping people to connect with their local communities, learn new skills, get active and improve their physical and mental health.

Will Norman, London’s Walking and Cycling Commissioner, said: “We’re looking forward to seeing the results of these projects, which are bound to encourage even more Londoners from diverse backgrounds to travel more actively around the capital.”
