Organisation Profile

At the Coalfields Regeneration Trust our ambition is to champion and strengthen coalfield communities, generate resources to respond to their needs and deliver programmes that make a positive and lasting difference. We are dedicated to improving the quality of life for the 5.5 million people living in former mining towns and villages. 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.

The scale of the challenges impacting on our communities is significant and far reaching and we recognise that we cannot work alone. We will continue to work in partnership across all coalfield areas with national government, local authorities, the third and private sectors wherever practical. With this support and partnership approach we know we can make a life changing difference to our communities so that they can make a positive contribution to social and economic performance of the UK.
