CWGC Near You

We work with local people and volunteers, schools and education networks, universities and community organisations across the world, supporting our international colleagues with engagement and connecting communities in this shared, global heritage.

We actively seek to develop relationships and partnership projects that promote the increased awareness of our work. We wish to increase visitor numbers to our sites and support communities in the exploration of their First World War and Second World War history at a local level and in an international context.

Across the UK, we are building a local, community engagement infrastructure with your help. We are connecting with local people and places and reconnecting neighbourhoods with the First World War and Second World War stories held within their local cemeteries. Volunteer champions, researchers and partner organisations are working with us to tell the stories of their local war graves and cemeteries.
