Heritage Lottery Fund North East: WWI then and now

Hertiage Lottery Fund - First World War- then and now

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) has launched “First World War: then and now”, new grants programme to help communities mark the Centenary of the First World War. 

The programme offers grants of £3,000 – £10,000 for community heritage projects.  We hope these will help communities across the North East to deepen their understanding of the impact of the conflict, for example by:

§                       researching, identifying and recording local heritage

§                       creating a community archive or collection

§                       developing new interpretation of heritage through exhibitions, trails, smart phone apps etc

§                       researching, writing and performing creative material based on heritage sources

Projects can focus on any heritage related to the First World War and we are encouraging new perspectives and stories not previously told. 

In the North East we really like to help groups before they fill out an application form, so if anyone is thinking of applying under this programme, we strongly recommend that they express their interest online. We will then let them know if their application is suitable for this programme and they can then decide whether to go ahead.

Kind Regards

Heritage Lottery Fund North East
