War Memorials Trust
 

Other sources of funding - Wales

In Wales grants to support the repair and conservation of war memorials are available from Cadw, the historic environment service of the Welsh Assembly Government. During the centenary of World War I the Grants for War Memorials scheme is providing specific funding and can be applied for alongside War Memorials Trust Grants Scheme.

There are however other schemes which could be considered. For further information on, or an application pack for, the schemes mentioned below you need to contact Cadw's historic buildings grants section on 01443 336000 or visit their website.

Historic Buildings and Conservation Area grants

Cadw is able to fund the repair and restoration of a war memorial if it is judged to be of 'outstanding' architectural or historic interest. Cadw may also fund repairs to war memorials in conservation areas if the works to the memorial will signficantly enhance the conservation area in which it is located.

Work funded under either of these schemes might include the repair and specialist conservation of memorials and typical grant rates are 25% - 30% of eligible work costs.

Civic Initiative grants

Some works to war memorials might be eligible for a grant under Cadw's Civic Initiatives (Heritage) Grant scheme. The scheme assists organsiations such as local civic and voluntary groups with projects which promote and enhance an understanding and appreciation of the built heritage. The maximum grant awarded under this scheme is £5,000 at 50% eligible costs; match funding must be found from non-public sources.
