About The CRT
The Coalfields Regeneration Trust (CRT) is an independent charity dedicated to changing the face of former Coalfields communities across the UK through supporting their social and economic regeneration. Since it was established in 1999 The CRT has awarded thousands of grants totalling many millions of pounds to projects that have improved the quality of life of people across the UK�s coalfields regions. However, the CRT is not just a grant-making body. The CRT also provides advice and support to community and voluntary groups to help them confirm their eligibility for funding, define their needs, create practical solutions, and seek funding from a variety of different sources.

How the CRT helped Penkridge & District Community First Responders:
In August 2010, the CRT awarded us a grant that allowed us to purchase equipment such as training manikins that were needed to allow the “Friends of the Penkridge Responders” deliver a range of training courses in the local community, in particular increasing the number of people able to provide CPR and use AEDs in emergency situations. (Please see our training pages to see if we can help you).
With our priority areas extending into the former Cannock coalfield communities of Hatherton, Huntington and Hednesford, our response capability has been helped by CRT grants ensuring enhanced emergency medical training as well as high driving standards of our responder team.
