The Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Company Shop

The Coalfields Regeneration Trust is the only organisation dedicated to regenerating Britain’s coalfield communities. Since 1999 the organisation has invested nearly £300m in activities that have supported over 25,000 people back into work, created over 5,000 jobs, improved the skills of over 1m people and benefitted over 2m. 
Of the 5.5m people living in these communities, 14% of all adults of working age are out of work and in receipt of benefits, 20% have no qualifications, there are only 50 jobs per 100 people and over 11% have long-term health problems. With many coalfield communities also falling into the 30% most deprived in the country, there is still a lot of work to be done.
The scale of the challenges that remain means the Coalfields Regeneration Trust cannot work alone and needs the help and expertise of partners and key stakeholders to restore the coalfield communities back to the thriving villages and towns they once were.
Recognising that both organisations have aligned values and positive impacts, the Coalfields Regeneration Trust and Company Shop formed a strategic partnership to address these challenges.
