Programme toolkits compiled by the Department for Communities and Local Government

These may also help you with your research

The Department for Communities and Local Government has published a First World War centenary programme 2014-2018 which serves as guidance to engage local communities in the commemoration of the First World War on 13th June 2014. 

The First World War centenary programme toolkit provides bite-sized facts and suggestions to help local communities get the most from the centenary programme. The guidance outlines a number of initiatives local communities can become involved with, including commemorative events, a national cultural programme, school battlefield visits, and the opportunity to become involved in social media. 

The guidance also features a useful list of national initiatives for individuals to become involved with at the local level, including the First World War Centenary Partnership, 14-18 NOW, and advice from the War Memorials Trust. You can read more about the First World War Centenary on www.1914.org.
