CRT - Coalfields Recovery & Resilience Fund

Coalfields Regeneration Trust

Mon 10 Jan 2022

The Coalfields Regeneration Trust (CRT) is now inviting enquiries to our Recovery & Resilience Fund.

We are offering grants of up to £10,000 to VCSE organisations delivering activities/services within the top 30% most deprived former coalfield areas.

Priority will be given to organisations that are delivering support services or have significantly adapted their services in order to respond to the current issues/challenges in their community and support vulnerable people.

Examples of the type of activities/services we would like to support are as follows (please note this list is not exhaustive):

  • Organisations providing direct advice, guidance and support to people who are in crisis and/or experiencing financial hardship 
  • Organisations supporting people who are experiencing poor mental health 
  • Organisations supporting vulnerable people who are experiencing health inequalities, loneliness and/or social isolation
  • Organisations supporting people experiencing domestic violence/sexual abuse
  • Organisations supporting local community activity, including volunteering, and co-ordination of services

 For further information on the Recovery & Resilience Fund either go to 


or email Richard Stevens (Regional Development Manager (West Midlands)) at  


CRT also continues to offer a comprehensive package of free practical support to our member organisations serving coalfield communities, however membership is not a pre-requisite for this round of grant funding.
