Motherhood, Loss and the First World War acknowledges the universality of bereavement as the defining experience of the First World War with a special focus on the impact on mothers — an overlooked aspect of grief from the period. Your group can research mothers from the UK who lost sons or daughters whilst they were serving in the First World War.

Funding

With support from the Ministry of Housing, Communities and Local Government, Big Ideas is offering a small scale eligible expenses scheme to help cover costs associated with any local activity or events taking place in England for Motherhood, Loss and the First World War in 2018. You can apply for anything between £5 – £200.

Remember RAF100

Remember RAF100 is a First World War commemoration programme which marks the formation of the RAF 100 years ago (on 1 April 1918) as well as commemorating the many air service personnel who lost their lives during the First World War. With the project you can discover their stories, remember their contribution, and share your findings with your community.

Funding

Schools and community groups can apply for up to £200 of funding per class or group to get involved in the project. The programme is a unique opportunity for schools and community groups across the UK to mark the centenary of the Armistice, and to discover and commemorate the contributions of the RAF in the First World War and the present day.
