The Coalfields Regeneration Trust recognises that the Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak is a major event, and that many small to medium charitable organisations and community groups will be concerned about its impact on their work and communities.

We want to reassure you that we will do everything we can to continue supporting the sector at this time.

  • There is lots of good advice out there, including from WCVA, which we encourage you to look at.”
  • We are doing all we can to make sure the Trust can carry on business as usual. Our staff can and will work from home if we need to.  At this time, we expect to stay open for grant applications and deadlines for decision making remain the same until further notice.
  • We know many of you are supporting some of the most vulnerable people but will yourselves be under extra pressure and uncertainty. We aim to be as flexible as we can be about awards you already have.
  • We know you may have to adapt your activities and we understand that – just contact us and we will work with you for the best way forward in terms of if you think you’re going to need to extend the timetable for activity we’ve funded, or you need more time to report to us.  Please email:
