Department for Culture, Media and Sport (DCMS)

The Department for Culture Media and Sport has made a £5 million fund available over the four year period of the First World War Centenary for the conservation and protection of war memorials.

The Department for Culture Media and Sport (DCMS) is the government department with responsibility for sport and culture in England, and some aspects of media throughout the UK.  DCMS also has responsibility for the tourism, leisure and creative industries. DCMS has produced a ‘Guide to Engaging Local Communities’ as part of the WWI centenary programme (2014-2018). Funding from DCMS will assist Historic England, Imperial War Museums, War Memorials Trust and Civic Voice with their programmes to record, research, conserve, list and protect war memorials.
