This is a £500,000 fund created to support activities that tackle some of the key challenges that still remain in coalfield communities. Funding of up to £10,000 is available for projects that deliver in the top 30% most deprived coalfield communities and that will make a positive difference in 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 the health and wellbeing of people in former coalfield communities.
The offer is now reopened and all the information on registering an enquiry and applying for funding relating to a project is on the Coalfields Regeneration Trust website under the Funding Support signpost.
