Coalfields Community Futures

Coalfields Community Futures

The programme enables communities to devise a community Action Plan which makes a case for the things that the community thinks are important and wishes to make happen.

The Programme aims to:

•   Identify local needs and priorities
•   Develop a deliverable community action plan
•   Make small scale improvements via a participatory budget fund
•   Work together with support to secure external funding
•   Work with each other to develop relationships and partners

The process encourages widespread involvement of local people in each Action Plan, each plan includes:

•   A vision for the future of the community
•   Views on the current state of the community
•   Priorities for action
•   The main strategies for community development

Since 2011 The Coalfields Community Futures Programme has:

•   Supported 46 coalfield communities to develop 5 year Action Plans
•   Surveyed a population of over 229,000 Residents
•   Carried out over 50 stakeholder surveys and received over 7000 household surveys
•   Involved over 9600 People in Community Open Days
•   Helped to set up 10 new Development Trust
•   Awarded 1.9 million pounds to 425 Projects through the Participatory Budget Fund
