Funding of road safety education in schools

Stewart Brock made this Freedom of Information request to North Lincolnshire Council as part of a batch sent to 62 authorities Automatic anti-spam measures are in place for this older request. Please let us know if a further response is expected or if you are having trouble responding.

The request was successful.

Dear North Lincolnshire Council,

I am researching the funding of road safety education in unitary authorities in England, and am specifically interested in funding arising from other than publicly funded organisations such as government or councils, and to be more specific funding by or on behalf of the motor industry. By motor industry I mean businesses that manufacture or sell motor vehicles, and organisations which represent motoring interests such as the Road Haulage Federation, Society of Motor Manufacturers and Traders, the RAC and AA etc.

My request is as follows:

1. Has your authority received funding and/or educational materials for road safety education in or for schools since 1/4/2019 from the motor industry. If so please provide details. Specifically,
a) which organisation(s) (eg Ford Motor Company, Road Haulage Association, RAC)
b) How much by financial year from each organisation
c) if materials, please state the name/title of the materials and source.

2. Does your authority have a policy on the use of educational materials in schools provided by businesses, and if so does that policy include the motor industry? Please provide a copy or link to same.

Yours faithfully,

Stewart Brock
