The Coalfields Community Grants Programme in Wales can award grants from £500 up to £7,000. This programme is for community and voluntary organisations that can demonstrate strongly that a grant will impact positively on people living in the Coalfield communities of Wales.

Grants will be awarded for projects that can be completed within 12 months and can identify clear positive outcomes for people that can be measured.

Please note: organisations must be located within a Welsh 'Coalfield Community'.
