Become part of the Barnardo's Allies Network

Thank you for your interest in joining our LGBTQ Allies network - we are changing the lives of children and young people and can’t do it without you.

As a SafeZone ally, you can play a huge part in supporting children and young people at a time when they need it most.

We want all children and young people who use our services, as well as our team of staff and volunteers, to feel respected and valued. We want everyone to celebrate who they are with pride.

As an ally, you will lead the way in becoming a champion for lesbian, gay, bisexual, trans and those children and young people who are questioning their sexual or gender identity.

Please sign up as a SafeZone ally today – and  make a vital difference in your network, organisation, school or community group.
