We’re interested in hearing from community groups who are planning activities to commemorate the centenary of the First World War. In particular, we’re keen to hear from groups who do not often engage in heritage or memorial projects and who would like some help with making their commemorative plans as effective as possible. We can offer support in kind as well as financial assistance through our Community Challenge Fund. This scheme offers grants of up to £500 to help community groups to achieve their research goals. Preference will be given to projects that reflect the Centre’s research themes.
Funded activities could include:
- Support to undertake a specific piece of research, such as funding travel to an archive
- Funding for training in research or presentation skills
- Access to research facilities and research support
