From 1st June, communities in Leeds and across the country will be able to apply for grants for installations to support their Remembrance Day activities for the centenary of the First World War.
This programme will allow communities to remember and commemorate by accessing our silhouettes for benches and chairs free of charge thanks to the support of the Armed Forces Covenant Fund.
These silhouettes can be placed within community halls, places of worship and places of education, bringing to mind those who went to war and did not return.You can apply for an award to purchase up to 10 silhouettes.
As part of the award, your organisation will need to hold a self-funded event to bring your local community together.
Applications are open between 1st and 30th June 2018.

- A charity

- A chapel or other place of worship, or multi-faith facility within a hospital or Armed Forces base, where people would not otherwise be able to engage in remembrance and engagement activity without financial resources
