The Kent Coalfield Community Fund is a new £30,000 grant programme created to support projects based in areas affected by the closures of Snowdown, Betteshanger and Tilmanstone collieries. The fund will be available from 1st April 2018 to 31st March 2019.
The Coalfields Regeneration Trust has provided the funding for the programme and it has been developed in partnership with the Aylesham and District Community Workshop Trust. Projects should be community focussed and seek to align with The Coalfields Regeneration Trust’s strategic themes of employment, skills and health.
Decisions on grant awards will be made by a panel of local community representatives coordinated by the Aylesham and District Community Workshop Trust (A&DCWT).
