Coalfield grants up for grabs

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.
