Barnardo’s Scotland provides more than 122 community-based services throughout the country working with over 26,500 vulnerable children, young people and their families.
Over the festive season, Build-A-Bear Workshop will be donating over 2,000 bears to Barnardo’s and will be asking customers if they would like to donate to the charity when they are at the tills. There will also be opportunities for customers to make and design Christmas garlands in store which will be donated to Barnardo’s children’s services across the UK.
Barnardo’s Scotland engages with external organisations to bring about positive change for children, young people and families within Scotland.
We produce a range of policy briefings and consultation responses for politicians, researchers and professionals, and we regularly run campaigns to involve our supporters in making positive change happen.
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.
Barnardo's Scotland shops would be delighted to receive any unused toys or household items, or those clothes and accessories you haven't worn for years. And for the thrifty shopper, our shops are a treasure throve of bargains!
Barnardo’s Scotland supports children, young people and their families to give them the best chances in life.
