The ‘First World War Fund: Then and Now’ aims to mark the heritage of the First World War by supporting community projects in the UK which explore, conserve and share the heritage of the First World War. Not – for – profit organisations in the UK with a bank account and a constitution can apply for grants of between £3,000 and £10,000. The projects should enable communities to understand more about the heritage of the First World War and benefit a wide range of people. To be eligible, projects should have not started yet, last for no more than two years, and achieve one or more of the following outcomes:
- Outcomes for people – people will have learnt about heritage; developed skills; changed their attitudes and/or behaviour; and volunteered time.
- Outcomes for heritage – heritage will be in better condition; better interpreted and explained; identified and recorded.
- Outcomes for communities – more people and a wider range of people will have engaged with heritage.
HLF is particularly keen that people will have learnt about heritage. This programme has a short application form which is suitable for everyone, including first – time applicants. There are no deadlines. Applications may be submitted at any time until 2019.
