Organisation Profile

The Coalfields Regeneration Trust (CRT) is Britain’s leading regeneration agency dedicated to Coalfield Communities.  Since 1999, we have awarded over £100 million in grants.  However, we are far more than a grant maker and we are increasingly taking a pro-active approach to developing and investing in strategic programmes to address regeneration issues.

In fact, CRT has always prided itself as being more than a funder often supporting groups and communities in ways that do not involve grant funding such as training, facilitation, mentoring, advising, supporting, brokering and being a trusted friend.  CRT has a constituency of supporting communities, groups and partners which places it in a unique position to help communities develop community regeneration projects.
