The Coalfields Funds were set up to support the growth of businesses in England’s former coalfield areas.

The £10m Coalfields Enterprise Fund, launched in 2004, was supported by the Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG).

The Coalfields Growth Fund, also £10m, was launched in 2009 with a further £5m from DCLG alongside £5m from the Enterprise Ventures Growth Fund.
