Policy and influencing in Scotland

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 needs to raise £4 million every year to enable us to run our services in Scotland which supports thousands of vulnerable children, young people and their families.
