Community groups are encouraged to apply for the new Coalfields Community Grant launched earlier this year by Coalfields Regeneration Trust.
Community Groups can apply for level 1 coalfield community grants of up £5,000 for activities that will benefit former coalfield areas. Grants are available from now until March 2013.
Coalfield Regeneration Trust provides advice and funding to community groups whose activities make a positive difference to the lives of people in coalfield communities.
The Trust guarantees to provide groups with a decision within 12 weeks of receiving the completed application forms.
