Making our ambition a reality
Our ambition at the Coalfields Regeneration Trust is to champion and strengthen former mining communities, generate resources to respond to their needs and deliver programmes that make a positive and lasting difference.
We are dedicated to supporting and improving the quality of life for the 5.5 million residents living in these small cities, towns and villages throughout the country.
We are proud of our track record over the last 20 years and have delivered targeted programmes that have addressed many of the huge challenges caused by the closure of the coal industry.
We believe there is a real imperative to create a dedicated investment programme for coalfield communities. Just like London, other major conurbations and niche communities need appropriate policies and investment to support their social and economic growth, with the right interventions coalfield communities can also contribute to economic growth and prosperity.
We feel it is our role to engage with key stakeholders and lobby the UK Government for the coalfields to receive a multimillion-pound boost over the next five years.
