Where your money goes
The money you and your toddlers raise by taking part in the Barnardo’s Big Toddle goes directly to our work with the UK’s most vulnerable under 5s.
Barnardo’s has over 100 under 5s services across the UK which seek to bring out the best in every child whether the issue is poverty, sexual exploitation, disability or domestic violence.
One of these projects supported by Big Toddle fundraising is Little Stars in Redbridge, London. Little Stars is a project from Barnardo’s Indigo Service. The project supports families in the early years when they are just coming to terms with the fact that their child may have additional needs or that have recently received a diagnosis.
What the money you raise can achieve
could buy lights for a multi-sensory room like the one featured in the Little Stars film
could pay for temporary accommodation for a child escaping domestic violence
would enable 5 young carers to visit a Barnardo’s drop in centre for a whole year
could buy a specialist climbing frame for disabled children
