The Department for Culture, Media and Sport 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. You can access the document here: www.gov.uk/government/uploads/system/uploads/attachment_data/file/320244/First_World_War_centenary_programme_2014-2018.pdf
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.
