War Memorials Trust (WMT) raises funds to support grants to war memorials. The fund seeks to facilitate repair and conservation works through its grants and act as a catalyst for action. It promotes current best conservation practice. This is a key principle at the heart of the scheme to ensure no works are damaging to a memorial and ensure it is maintained for future generations. Some works may be considered to be outside the scope of funding if funds become limited but this does not mean they necessarily contravene conservation principles. General maintenance is considered to be the responsibility of custodians. They can fund conservation, like-for-like repair, structural repair/stabilisation, reinstatement of lost elements that form an integral part of the design, professional condition surveys and structural reports.
