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.

Every £1 you donate will help us change a child's life.

How your money helps

Of every pound we spend (excluding retail costs) 92p goes on our work. 3p on governance and pension costs and 5p on raising the next £1. For full details of our spend, see our latest annual report.
