We protect, support and nurture the UK's most vulnerable children

Barnardo's helps bring out the best in children – no matter who they are or what they have been through.

For every £1 you donate, we spend 91p on working with the children and young people who most need our help.

What we do

  • Two girls hugging and smiling

    Fostering and adoption

    We have more than 100 years' experience of placing children with foster carers and adoptive families. Could you provide a safe and loving home to a child who needs it?

  • Young boy in front of a brick wall

    Protecting children

    We support children who have been abused and help them feel safe again. We provide the long-term support they need and help prevent further cases of abuse.
