As the UK’s largest national children’s charity we work with central and local government to achieve better outcomes for more children.

Champion children in parliament 

We know young people want to be heard. You can champion their voices in Parliament by:

  • asking questions
  • holding debates
  • hosting events 

and in your local community by:

  • visiting a Barnardo’s service
  • volunteering in a shop 
  • attending a local event
  • holding a surgery or ‘Ask your MP’ event for young constituents aged 16-25
  • during the current Covid-19 crisis, it may not be possible to visit our services or hold surgery events in person, but we’ve put together a list of ways you can still support young constituents
Barnardo’s has long been the home to many of our young people providing them with refuge, friendship and safety. Barnardo’s maintains those qualities today and long may it continue to protect and support some of our vulnerable young people.
