This workshop will be hosted by the HLF Scotland Development Team in Partnership with colleagues from Gateways to the First World War.

They welcome enquiries from individuals or groups wherever they are located and can connect you with university researchers, recommend archives and resources, advise on documenting and sharing your project and provide training. Each centre has areas of particular expertise. You can find out more on the First World War Engagement Centres website.
The session will involve:
· An overview from HLF about the funding available, and top tips for applying
· Presentations from engagement centre colleagues outlining support they can offer
· Case studies from HLF projects currently in delivery
· The opportunity to network and discuss project ideas with engagement centre colleagues, HLF development staff and other community partners.
