As a leading provider of children’s centres we understand that being a parent or carer can be hard work. Our children’s centres provide a fun, safe haven where mums, dads, parents-to-be, carers and children can learn, develop and spend quality time in a welcoming and supportive environment.

Barnardo’s has helped children and their families for over 150 years. Today we run more than 180 Ofsted accredited children centres where our skilled staff helps over 160,000 children and their families every year.

Our vision

We believe that every child deserves the best start in life, regardless of their gender, race, disability or behaviour.

Our children’s centres are a fun, friendly, safe space providing services to support you and your family to achieve your aspirations.
