What we believe
Barnardo’s believes in children regardless of their circumstances, gender, race, disability or behaviour. Our purpose as a charity today is to transform the lives of the UK’s most vulnerable children
We believe in the abused, the most vulnerable, the forgotten and the neglected. We will support them, stand up for them and bring out the best in each and every child.
We do this because we believe that every child deserves the best start in life and the chance to fulfil their potential.
We use the knowledge gained from our direct work with children to campaign for better childcare policy and to champion the rights of every child.
With the right help, committed support and a little belief, even the most vulnerable children can turn their lives around. Barnardo’s is regulated by the Charity Commission. Being a registered charity means that we must always be accountable and transparent.
Give with confidence
Barnardo’s adheres to the Donor’s Charter and
Fundraising Standards Board guidelines.
91 pence in every £1 we spend goes towards our work helping the UK’s most vulnerable children, young people and their families (falling to 81p if trading and property development costs are included). Of the remaining 9p, 3p is spent on our governance and 6p is spent on raising the next £1 to fund our work.
