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:
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; please contact us to check eligibility:
• Blaenau Gwent
• Merthyr Tydfil
• Neath Port Talbot
• Rhondda Cynon Taff
Game On Gear Grant
Game On Wales is a programme delivered by The Coalfields Regeneration Trust. 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.
