Wales Funding & Programmes
Building Prosperity & Opportunity
The Coalfields Regeneration Trust was established in 1999 to help tackle the high levels of deprivation in former mining communities, representing over 5.5 million people in the UK and 757,000 people in Wales.
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 are dedicated to building prosperity and opportunities in former mining communities. To achieve this we focus on employment, skills and health and wellbeing. We also recognise the importance of retaining and developing local facilities and social enterprises which provide services to former mining communities.
