Centenary Events

Find out what's happening near you

During our centenary year, we look back to see how far we’ve come since Eglantyne Jebb founded the charity in 1919. And we celebrate the fantastic achievements made together.

We’ve been there for children when they’ve needed us most; setting up nurseries in the UK during WWII, raising the alarm about the Ethiopian famine, reuniting families after the Rwandan genocide and launching our largest ever response to the Asian tsunami.

It’s the support of people like you that has made everything we’ve accomplished over the past 100 years possible.

Our centenary has seen a tremendous amount of activity, that all of us at Save the Children UK have been amazed by the efforts, dedication and support from so many volunteers and supporters.

The impact of our Centenary Year has reached far beyond our own organisation with some incredible engagement from so many different communities across the country. 

Upcoming events are listed below:
