How are you commemorating the final year of the First World War centenary? We would like to invite you to become part of our centenary legacy to the nation and beyond. 

At Never Such Innocence (NSI) we aim to ensure young people understand the complexities of war and the vital importance of the sacrifices our forces made 100 years ago and that continue to do so today and sadly, tomorrow. 

We encourage children to learn, through the lessons of the First World War, about our global shared history and heritage.

Donations of any size are welcomed by NSI - these will help our education initiatives reach as many schoolchildren across the United Kingdom, and indeed the world, as possible. To donate online quickly and securely please click DONATE in the right hand column.

Where the money goes
Our costs are low - office space is kindly provided pro bono by Robert Walters PLC and our team is small. Your donation will go directly towards helping empower young people and allow them to play their part in the centenary. During this final centenary year we will be celebrating the creativity of NSI children in a series of very exciting events! A sponsor could gain significant benefits from supporting the most comprehensive and wide-reaching educational initiative to be launched during the centenary of the First World War. 


The 2017/18 Awards Ceremony will be at the beautiful Guards’ Chapel in Wellington Barracks and will feature the Band of the Scots Guards and the Band of the Royal Marines. There will also be a surprise from the Royal Air Force! Benefits would include branding opportunities at this prestigious and high profile event and VIP invitations to attend the Awards Ceremony.


Prizes for the competition will be awarded to the first, second, and third prize winners and their schools, and to runners up. Prizes will carry the name of the individual or organisation that sponsors them. 


The Never Such Innocence Legacy Roadshow will travel across the United Kingdom to celebrate the creativity of NSI’s young people and their important contribution to the centenary. Children will receive special certificates at the events and have the opportunity to showcase their work. Benefits would include branding opportunities and invitations to our Roadshow.
