Change a life

Help a child today

We work to improve the lives of every vulnerable child and young person in the UK.

We run over 1000 services across the UK, working to build stronger families, safer childhoods and positive futures. We do this through counselling and long term support for children who have been abused, supported lodgings for care leavers, vocational training for young people, and many other vital services.

Every Barnardo's service is different but each believes in the potential in every child and young person, no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through.

When Barnardo’s was founded 152 years ago, our vision was of a world where no child in need was turned away.

In 2017-18, we worked with 301,100 children, young people, parents and carers – an eleven per cent increase from the 272,300 we worked with in 2016-17.
