The Coalfields Regeneration Trust is dedicated to improving the quality of life for the 5.5 million people living in Britain’s former mining communities. Many of these communities still require support due to the huge impact the closure of the mines had upon them.
The Coalfields Recovery and Resilience Fund has been created to support activities that tackle some of the current key challenges affecting coalfield communities. The fund is open to organisations that deliver in the top 30% most deprived coalfield communities and that will make a positive difference in addressing the issues/challenges in their communities. Applications must address 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 & Wellbeing: Supporting activities that improve the health and wellbeing of all age groups.
The fund is now open and all the information about the fund and how to register an enquiry is on the on their website.
