Workplace giving

Girl Holdiing Coin

Staff can give a donation to Barnardo’s on a regular basis (usually monthly) through the payroll. This provides us with a consistent supply of funds, which is our lifeblood as Barnardo’s helps children over the long term.

You can support your employees’ choice to donate to Barnardo’s by matching employees’ donations. This will double the impact of their donation in the local community, and show your employees that their company cares equally about a cause which matters to them.

Tens of thousands of employees throughout the UK regularly donate to Barnardo’s through their pay, including those working for the Royal Mail Group, the Royal Bank of Scotland and BT.
