Coalfields Regeneration Trust

Coalfields Regeneration Trust

Following the impact of the pandemic on income and employment and the increase in cost of living, people are finding it harder to make ends meet and low income households are having to choose between food and fuel. These small grants are available to help organisations provide the much needed support that low income families need. 

As well as the immediate need for support with food and fuel, we appreciate that there has also been an impact on mental health as a result of the pandemic and more people are isolated.

The types of projects we hope to fund are:

  • Food Poverty projects 
  • Information, Advice & Guidance projects 
  • Social groups 
  • Projects supporting the homeless
  • Or any other project which would benefit those in crisis

Up to 50% of the amount you apply for can be for capital items such as any equipment you need to help you deliver your project. For example, any cooking equipment for a holiday hunger project or lunch club. 

You can apply for core costs (running costs) as long as you can demonstrate that it's to support the delivery of your project and helps to address some of the issues faced by those in crisis.

Coalfield areas eligible for funding in Warrington are: Bewsey & Whitecross, Burtonwood and Winwick, Fairfield & Howley, Orford, Poplars and Hulme, Poulton North.

Decisions will be made regularly as applications are received and until this year’s allocation of funding has been committed.
