The Coalfields Community Investment Programme is a small fund created to support activities that tackle some of the key challenges that still remain in coalfield communities.
Projects will need to meet one or more of the following themes to be eligible for support from the Community Investment Programme Scotland:
- Job creation and employment support – projects that create new sustainable jobs within the community, or support people into work, including addressing barriers to work such as childcare or transport.
- Skills and Training –projects that develop skills for people or provide qualifications.
- Health and Wellbeing– projects that improve the quality of life for people living in Coalfield communities with health problems, or projects that prevent negative impacts on health and well being.
- Community Action- projects that build community capacity to help residents address local issues and concerns.
