Our work with children

Small boy

As one of the UK's leading children's charities, Barnardo's works directly with 248,000 children, young people, parents and carers every year. We run over 996 vital services across the UK, including counselling for children who have been abused, fostering and adoption services, vocational training and disability inclusion groups.

Every Barnardo's service is different but each believes in the potential in every child and young person, no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through.
