FUNDING AVAILABLE TO SUPPORT SUSTAINABLE COMMUTING

Funding Available to Support Sustainable Communiting

What is the project about?
The project is about improving the health and wellbeing of staff, reducing congestion and improving air quality. It offers support to businesses to improve the accessibility of workplaces for both staff and visitors, and to benefit the local community by enabling access to opportunity and employment. By improving the options of how staff can travel to work we aim to work in partnership to reduce the number of trips made by single occupancy vehicles.

Who is funding it and how is it being delivered?
The Workplace Engagement project is funded by the Department for Transport through the Thinktravel programme and being delivered by Aecom and Go Travel Solutions.


Who is taking part?
The project is focused on the urban centres and surrounding areas of Gloucester and Cheltenham. Initial engagement has started with many major employers in the area including:
 UCAS
 Gloucestershire Constabulary
 Gloucestershire Hospitals
 Cheltenham Borough Council
 Gloucestershire Fire and Rescue
 University of Gloucestershire


What’s in it for my organisation?
 Free consultancy time to develop a solution focussed action plan tailored to your needs;
 Intelligence about how your staff travel to work and why;
 Discounts for your staff such as money of purchasing a bike, rail travel, car club membership and much more. Find out details here: http://www.smartgo.co.uk/thinktravel/
 A healthier, happier and more productive workforce;
 Financial savings from reduced business costs and reduced staff absenteeism;


What next?
This opportunity is only available for a further 8 organisations this year, so register your interest quickly by responding to this email. Participants will be chosen on a first served basis.

We will then arrange a call to find out more about your business and allocate you an advisor to work closely with you to help achieve your goals.
