Young people leaving care are some of the most vulnerable young people in our society with over 62% of looked after children taken into care due to abuse or neglect.

Leaving care is a key moment in these young people’s lives, and events at this stage in their life will have a lasting impact. Care leavers are forced to be independent much younger than their peers but without the support network and safety of a family. Barnardo's leaving care services aim to bridge the gap for children in care between leaving care and living in the adult world.

Without people like you, Barnardo’s simply cannot keep up with the growing number of young people in the UK who need support at this critical time in their lives.

With your help, we can reach more of them.

Please take action today. Whether you search for your local Supported Lodgings service, make a donation or support one of our campaigns, you’ll be helping us to change the lives of vulnerable young people in the UK every day.
