Northern Ireland voluntary and community organisations awarded £140,000 in road safety grants

CTA today announced the voluntary and community organisations that have been successful in their bid for funding from the Department of the Environment’s Road Safety Grants Programme.

Over the next five months, the organisations awarded grants will play an important role in helping to make Northern Ireland’s roads safer by improving road user attitudes and behaviours.

CTA awarded grants to a diverse range of organisations that had both a concern about road safety and could deliver an innovative, community-led project within a limited timeframe.

Following a competitive process, 23 successful organisations have been awarded road safety grants to support their locally-based road safety initiatives.

Bryan Myles, the manager responsible for the funding at CTA said, “We are delighted to be awarding the grants on behalf of the Department of the Environment to help organisations make their local roads safer for everyone.  We know that the voluntary sector plays a significant role in reaching some of the most vulnerable people in society and we hope that this funding can further inspire creative people to do even more to improve the safety on our roads”.   

 

A list of successful organisations for grants awarded in 2011/12 is outlined in the following table:
