Learning Volunteers

Heritage Lottery Fund logoIn September 2013 War Memorials Trust received a grant of £9,900 from the Heritage Lottery Fund’s Sharing Heritage scheme to develop a Learning Volunteer role.

This grant was used to fund a yearlong project to train Learning Volunteers to deliver learning sessions in schools and youth groups, so that they could work directly with young people and help them learn about their war memorial heritage during the centenary of the First World War.

The project was run in Kent. Learning Volunteers were recruited and trained by War Memorials Trust's Learning Officer in early 2014, so schools could take advantage of visits from Learning Volunteers during the centenary of the First World War.

War Memorials Trust was delighted to be able to develop its Learning Programme through this new role, and is extremely grateful to the Heritage Lottery Fund for its support for the project.

With the end of the Learning Programme in 2019 the role of Learning Volunteer formally concluded.
