In early 2019 the Heritage Lottery Fund will begin a new, five-year Strategic Funding Framework that sets out how they will distribute National Lottery good causes money to the heritage sector.

The last deadline for applications to the The First World War: Then and Now scheme will be 18th January 2019.

Gateways is keen to continue supporting applications for First World War projects up to that date and if you would like to discuss ways in which we can do this please contact Gateways' Community Heritage Researcher Dr Sam Carroll at We will also continue to provide support for funded projects during 2019.
