The Share The Joy Community Fund is a new partnership initiative from LCC and Lime with support from LOUD Mobility. The fund awards grants to projects that help encourage more people to cycle, so if you’re a London-based community group, submit your application today.

All London-based cycling community groups can submit applications now. The first round of funding will be awarded in September 2024 with three additional rounds before December 2025.

You can apply for funding to cover core costs, project costs, or new equipment. The average grant awarded is £2,500 but exceptional cases and brilliant ideas will receive more, so don’t hold back when applying!

Lime kick-started the fund by generously contributing £100,000. The aim is to grow it much further to fund even more community cycling projects. If you or your organisation can contribute, please get in touch.

Grants are awarded to groups or ideas that demonstrate potential in one of three categories. Projects that support groups underrepresented in cycling, or that may have difficulty accessing funding from elsewhere, are given additional priority.
1. Health & Wellbeing

For organisations or cycling projects that improve physical and mental wellbeing or tackling health inequalities.

2. Accessibility & Inclusion

For organisations or projects that provide cycling support to groups underrepresented in cycling in London.

3. Skills & Connectivity

For organisations or projects that help people develop skills and access employment opportunities, as well as provide free or discounted access to active travel to enable connectivity.

Not sure which category is best for you? Contact us and we can help you submit your application today.
