Cycling Friendly NHS Worker Fund
Supporting NHS staff during Covid-19 to travel to work by bike.
Cycling Scotland is inviting NHS Scotland health boards to continue to support their staff to cycle to work through a specific scheme aimed to support staff during Covid-19.
In response to the pandemic, our new Cycling Friendly NHS Worker Fund will support key worker staff, who wouldn’t be able to otherwise, access a free bike and lock.
This scheme is aimed to support staff who might not otherwise be able to access bikes through a Cycle to Work scheme due to, for example, affordability or temporary contracts.
We’re inviting NHS Scotland Health Boards to apply for funding between £2,500 and £15,000 which will cover resources for staff:
- Bikes (to the value of £500 for staff previously not meeting Cycle to Work criteria) as well as lights, mud guards, puncture repair kits and other equipment
- Bike locks (to value of £60 grant for staff eligible for Cycle to Work scheme)
