Community groups across the borough can benefit from a share of a £500,000 programme launched by the Coalfields Regeneration Trust.
Local organisations can apply for up to £10,000 from the Coalfields Community Investment Programme to help improve employment opportunities, skills and health and wellbeing of those living in ‘coalfield communities’.
Andy Lock, head of operations for Coalfields Regeneration, said: “We know that coalfield communities need further resources in order to support community groups and initiatives that have an impact locally.
“The Coalfields Community Investment Programme can support these organisations and give them the assistance they need to continue to deliver the essential services they offer.”
Launched in 1999, The Coalfields Regeneration Trust has supported more than two million people, through helping secure or find jobs, improving skills and qualifications and providing access to health-boosting activities.
