Education and Public Engagement

Our objective is to make sure that our sites – from individual scattered graves to cemeteries and memorials - are visited and explored as a permanent part of local and national heritage within the UK.

Today, over a century after we first began, our work continues through our staff, supporters and volunteers who preserve our unique cultural, horticultural and architectural heritage and ensure that the stories of those who died in the First World War and Second World War are told.

We aim to actively engage new audiences and find innovative ways to involve the whole community with our work – through education and outreach, voluntary activity, arts and heritage projects, local research and partnership working. We aim to increase local awareness of CWGC sites across the UK.
