More First World War Centenary funding


The Heritage Lottery Fund will make an additional £4 million available in 2015/16 for more local communities to explore the impact of war. The funding will add to the £6 million ‘First World War: Then and Now’ grant scheme, which opened in 2013 and runs until 2019. The scheme has already made it possible for thousands of young people and communities throughout the UK to get involved in activities marking the centenary of the war, including researching and recording local heritage and using digital technology to share stories of the war’s impact. It is hoped that the additional money will enable stories surrounding the Battle of the Somme to be uncovered and explored. To read more, click here.
