In 2016-17, we supported 272,000 vulnerable children, young people and carers.
Here are the stories of two of them...
"I'm 20 years old now and I've been part of Barnardo's since primary school. I have a physical disability and Barnardo's has helped me gain more independence by getting me in all sorts of adventures and activites.
What people don't realise is that even though I may not be able to walk, jog, or sprint I am able to get around in my chair, and it gives me a chance to have equality with others. At home I love playing computer games because it gives me such a varity of different experiences. I play these games to feel equal.
If everyone else plays them, why can't I? People may see me and think I wouldn't be able to do certain things, but I've been able to prove them wrong.
We all have a barrier. If we remove it anything is possible."
"I was in foster care, then a big children's home. Then I moved in with my dad but it wasn't a safe place and bad things happened. So I ended up living in a tent. I cared for no one and no one cared for me. I had no prospects, no aspiration. I had nothing. I felt empty inside.
When I thought things couldn't get any worse my tent broke. But that's when Barnardo's found me. Suddenly I had a nice warm bed and food to eat. I felt warm and realised that at last someone cared for me. I'd never had that feeling before.
Barnardo's helped me into an apprenticeship and at the age of 19 I'm on my way to achieving an ambition to be a mechanic. Who knows how far I can go in the future and that's all thanks to Barnardo's believing in me."
