On 28 April Coalfields Regeneration Trust launched a £1 million Coalfields Community Grant programme; this funding scheme will see up to £10,000 per application handed to coalfield community organisations throughout the country over the next year.

The programme is aimed at organisations, community groups and social enterprises that can make a positive difference in the communities; this programme builds on the previous track record of providing funding that responds to local needs.

The type of projects likely to be supported through this funding include:

  • Support community involvement – projects that bring people and communities together and improve social interaction, particularly projects that engage the hardest to reach or vulnerable groups.
  • Tackle poverty – projects that work with the most vulnerable people in coalfield communities to alleviate the effects of poverty.
  • Create jobs and help people into work – projects that create new sustainable jobs within the community, or support people into work, including addressing barriers to work such as childcare or transport.
  • Develop skills and training opportunities – projects that develop skills for people or help them gain new qualifications.
  • Improve health and wellbeing – projects that improve the quality of life for people living in coalfield communities with health problems, or projects that prevent negative impacts on health and wellbeing.
  • Support social enterprise development – projects that support the growth and development of social enterprises.
  • Support financial inclusion – projects that develop the skills of people to manage their finances and provide support to those with problem debts.
