First World War

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has announced a new £6million small grants programme to help communities mark the Centenary of the First World War.

First World War: then and now, will see £1million available per year for six years until 2019 via small grants ranging from £3,000 to £10,000. The awards will enable communities to conserve and share their First World War heritage and develop projects that improve understanding of the conflict.  Focusing on:

  • The identification, recording and preservation of local heritage
  • The creation of community archives or collections
  • Exhibitions, trails, smartphone apps and creative material such as plays and music based on heritage sources, the idea is to create an enduring cultural and educational legacy for communities.

First World War: then and now is a rolling programme, and applications can be submitted at any time. Visit the First World War Then and Now website for details.
