We believe in children 

They have amazed and inspired us for more than 150 years. 

Barnardo’s exists solely to protect and support the UK’s most vulnerable young people. We help bring out the best in them – no matter who they are or what they have been through. 

We do this by providing services across the country that specialise in areas such as helping young carers, protecting against child abuse and supporting young people leaving care.

We helped 301, 100 children, young people, parents and carers in 2017-18. Below are just a few examples of how believing in children can transform lives. There are many other young people who need our help.
