Youth Groups

Cadets at a Remembrance service, © Bury Grammar School, 2011War Memorials Trust's Learning Website provides ideas and materials for young people in schools and youth groups, and the adults who work with them.  We work to educate future generations of war memorial custodians so that they can continue our work to protect and conserve war memorials into the future.

In this section of the website you can access our materials for our youth groups.



War Memorials Trust provides resoruces and suggestions for different youth groups.  These include:

  • Information and activity sheets for any young person interested in war memorials, their history and how they should be conserved.  There are different resources available for younger and older children
  • Resources for Cubs and Scouts to help them achieve the Local Knowledge Activity Badge and Heritage Activity Badge



War Memorials Trust is involved with two projects - War Memorials Online and In Memoriam 2014 - that will help to conserve and protect our war memorials into the future.  Please use the menu on the left to find out more about these projects, how young people can get involved with the maintenance of their local war memorial and how they can raise awareness of it within their local community.
