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.
Fast Track Funding
This application is for energy efficiency or health and safety improvements for community facilities, which are based in, or benefit people from eligible coalfield areas:
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:
Projects must be based in an eligible coalfield community or be able to show clear and immediate benefits for an eligible coalfield community. Projects must benefit the wider community. Please note only certain wards within the Local Authorities listed below are eligible:
Organisations based in, or benefitting the following wards in Flintshire are also eligible to apply: Ffynongroyw; Gronant; Mostyn; Trelawnyd & Gwaenysgor and Whitford.
Coalfields Cymru Kit Grant
The aim of the Game On Gear grant is to get more young people (13 – 19) from Welsh Coalfield communities to play sport. We fund sports kit to maximum value of £500.
