SUPPORTING FORMER COLLEAGUES AND THEIR FAMILIES

The CTBA exists to provide financial assistance to those that have worked in the coal distribution trade, whether as delivery persons, coal merchants or the many other related occupations and trades.

WHAT WE DO

IT ALL STARTED ON 23rd JULY 1888…

The coal industry has seen dramatic changes over the past 130 years and the Association is proud of its tradition of being able to respond to the changing needs of its beneficiaries.

OUR ORIGINS

VOLUNTEER WITH US

Our volunteer case visitors are the essential component of our work supporting the CTBA’s beneficiaries across the United Kingdom. Several times per year they visit beneficiaries to check on their well-being and to see if the support we presently offer is delivering everything that is needed. Visitors are supported in this work by their local branch committee, made up of other local volunteers and who provide regular reports and recommendations on the needs and requirements of our beneficiaries. Could you volunteer your time for a few hours each month?
