The Coalfields Community Investment Programme
The Coalfields Regeneration Trust has reopened the enquiry survey for the Coalfields Community Investment Programme providing funding up to £10,000. We also offer practical help to organisations/groups operating in the former coalfield areas in England.
1. The Coalfields Community Investment Programme – Funding Support 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.
Our offer is now reopened and all the information on registering an enquiry and applying for funding relating to a project is on the following page:
Following retirement from employment, Mansfield Voluntary Service (C.V.S) have given me so much help and advice to start up our community group over 10 years ago. We wanted to get the children in the community a new play park. Without the help of Mansfield C.V.S directing us how to write and prepare a Business plan we wouldn’t have achieved the £68,000 to pay for it.
