Heritage Lottery Fund Welcomes Applications for First World War Heritage Projects


Heritage Lottery Fund continues their call for applications to help projects that explore, conserve and share the heritage of the First World War.

The Heritage Lottery Fund (HLF) are continuing their call for applications from UK organisations to support community projects in the UK which explore, conserve and share the heritage of the First World War.

Aimed at marking the heritage of the First World War, The HLF’s ‘First World War Fund: Then and Now’ supports community projects in the UK which explore, conserve and share the heritage of the First World War.

Not-for-profit UK organisations, with a bank account and a constitution, can apply for grants of between £3,000 and £10,000.

Charities, trusts, clubs, interest groups, faith groups, history groups, community and voluntary groups, social enterprises, youth groups, schools and colleges are also eligible to apply.

The projects should allow 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 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.

The HLF says it is especially interested in wanting people to gain knowledge about heritage.

The programme requires a short application form to be completed which HLF says is suitable for everyone, including first-time applicants.

Because scheme is a continuous rolling programme, there is no deadline and so applications can be accepted at any time.

At the time of writing, however, HLF have announced that because they will be launching their new Funding Framework early in 2019, the Fund will not be able to accept applications under this programme after 18 January 2019.

For more details and how to apply, visit the Heritage Lottery website.

You can also contact HLF during office hours on 020 7591 6042 or 020 7591 6044, or e-mail them at
