  • 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.
