Coalfields Regeneration Trust (East & West Midlands, North East & North West of England, Yorkshire & Kent)
Grants totalling £125,000 are available through the Coalfields Regeneration Trust to support activities that tackle some of the key challenges that still affect the top 30% most deprived coalfield communities. The funding is available to projects run by community and voluntary organisations that will make a positive difference by addressing the following themes:
- Skills - growing the skills of people in order to increase their opportunities
- Employment - developing pathways to increase the number of people in work
- Health - supporting projects that increase participation in activities/services that improve health and wellbeing.
Grants of up to £10,000 are available (a maximum of £2,000 capital may be included). Committees meet quarterly to allocate grants totalling £125,000 in each round. Applicants are advised to consult the eligible wards list on the website before making an application.
