Funding Available In Wales


We appreciate the time and effort that fundraising takes and aim to be as clear as possible about what The Coalfields Regeneration Trust in Wales does and doesn’t fund, how to apply and how long the process typically takes.

Coalfields Community Grant Programme (Wales)
The Coalfields Community Grant Programme has invested over £20 million in community and voluntary sector projects since 1999, targeting communities most in need. We provide grants (from £500 – £7,000 revenue or capital) to community organisations to support projects in Welsh coalfield communities that create jobs, increase skills, improve health & well-being, broaden childcare provision or develop community facilities. A Wales Grant Assessment Panel meets quarterly.

The first stage in the process is completing the Coalfields Community Grant Programme (Wales) Enquiry Form:

CRT Game On + Kit Grant

The aim of the grant is to get more people residing in our former coal mining towns and villages (ages 13 – 19) to play and stay in sport. Sport Wales statistics highlight an alarming drop off of registered players during these teenage years.

As in previous years all kit via this grant is supplied via Macron – Taffs Well.
