WW1 Community Platform
 
 
  The development of a sustainable archive and platform to digital content created as part of the WW1 Engagement Centres’, the activities of engagement-centre sponsored WW1 community projects, and through HLF-funded Centenary community projects, is at the heart of this work.  
   
About The Project
Silhuettes

To help ensure this legacy continues for years to come, the digital materials from 50 community-led Centenary projects from across the United Kingdom are brought together here as a searchable and sustainable web-resource.

Thanks to the funding received from the National Lottery Heritage Fund (NLHF) between 2014 and 2018, community Centenary projects created an unprecedented volume of digital content, from scans of photographs and letters, through to web-sites and databases. With the end of the Centenary of the War the risk posed to all this content is grave, so this WWI Community Platform will help secure a future to these digital legacies. The Platform enables users to freely access digital materials from these NLHF funded projects, and continue to explore the social and cultural impacts of the First World War though the efforts of community researchers.
