Barnardo’s East

Barnardo’s East believes in children regardless of their circumstances, gender, race, disability or behaviour. Our purpose is to transform the lives of the most vulnerable children across the east region of England.

We believe in the abused, the most vulnerable, the forgotten and the neglected.

We will support them, stand up for them and bring out the best in every child. We do this because we believe that every child deserves the best start in life and the chance to fulfil their potential.

Have you ever thought about fostering or adopting a child?

We believe that every child has the right to grow up in a safe, secure and loving home. There are hundreds of vulnerable children in the East who desperately need your help.

Can you help a child to achieve their full potential? Perhaps you could foster or adopt a child with Barnardo’s support. The decision has the potential to transform a child’s life and yours.

Barnardo’s is an independent, voluntary fostering and adoption agency with over 100s years of experience.

We welcome all applications regardless of age, gender, marital status, sexual orientation, ethnicity or religion. You might be married, single or already have a family. You might rent your home or you may own it. What is important is that you can give a child a safe, stable and loving environment. As long as you are over 21 years and have a spare room you will be considered.

With Barnardo’s you won’t do it alone. We will support you every step of the way through the process of fostering or adopting, as well as supporting you in the years beyond. Find out more about fostering or adopting with Barnardo's.
