At the Coalfields Regeneration Trust we work with partners to implement programmes of activity that provide those living in the communities with the opportunity to get involved with sports initiatives, take part in coaching courses and access world-class health facilities.
We also encourage involvement with partner schemes which include anything from teaching parents how to cook healthy and nutritious meals on a budget, to providing support for a community kitchen or shop that will provide good quality food for those living in some of the most deprived areas.
