Influencing Priorities

Barnardo’s Scotland is committed to making positive change for children, young people and families in Scotland.

Our policy team uses our collective knowledge and experience to influence policy and legislation, with a particular focus on children in and leaving care, child sexual exploitation and abuse, and mental health and wellbeing. We also produce a range of policy briefings and consultation responses for politicians, researchers and professionals.


Barnardo's Scotland relies on public and corporate donations to fund the £2 million cost of running our Scottish services each year which support thousands of vulnerable children, young people and their families.
