Dedicated to supporting the UK's former coal mining communities At the Coalfields Regeneration Trust we are dedicated to support and improving the quality of life for the 5.5m people living in former mining towns and villages. With a mission 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 aware that we still have a job to do. We have a track record of delivering targeted and responsive programmes that have addressed many of the challenges still prevalent in the communities. Despite the positive progress that has been made, it is essential that we continue to provide the coalfields with a voice, in order for us to be in a position to address the many and carried issues that still have a disproportionate impact on those living in these areas. With the continued support of national governments and key stakeholders we know that we can make a life changing difference to these communities so that they can make a positive contribution to the social and economic performance of the UK moving forward.
