Visits to your youth group

As well as using the materials on this website you can arrange for our Learning Officer, a qualified teacher, to visit your youth group.  This is an excellent opportunity for the young people in your youth group to gain a greater understanding of the significance of our war memorial heritage and inspire them to become the war memorial custodians of the future.

The content of a visit is flexible and individually planned so can be tailored to meet your requirements and cover the particular aspect of war memorials you would like your group to learn about.  Visits can consist of a combination of activities including talks and can even include a visit to a local war memorial.  More information about the topics and issues we cover can be found in the Visit Booking Guidance Notes and in the Youth Group section of our website  To help you make the most of the visit and to ensure that our time and resources are used effectively, our Learning Officer is happy to combine a visit to your youth group with visits to local schools on the same day if this is something you can arrange with local teachers.

Our Learning Officer is able to carry out visits throughout the year across the whole of the UK.  Evening or weekend visits can be arranged if your youth group meets in the evening or at the weekend. We strongly recommend contacting us well in advance of when you would like your visit to take place in order to avoid disappointment particularly if you are considering a visit during October or November.

Examples of work done during previous visits can be found in our Showcase and Feedback pages.


Availability update

Our Learning Officer is now fully booked for visits until the end of November 2018. Should you wish to arrange a visit our Learning Officer has availability from December 2018 onwards.



War Memorials Trust is a charity and our income comes entirely from voluntary donations. Our visits are offered free of any standard charge but the Trust asks schools and youth groups to make a contribution towards the costs of visits. These donations help the charity cover travel expenses incurred during visits and help fund the development of future learning materials, so that we can continue to offer high quality support to young people as they learn about our war memorial heritage.

Suggested donations are:

  •  £50 for a half day visit (with a minimum time of two hours)
  • £100 for a whole day visit

Further details about costs can be found in the Terms and Conditions.
