Share your kindness and bring your pre-loved donation to one of Barnardo’s 600 stores
Donating to a Barnardo’s charity shop is a way to give your items a second chance while raising vital funds to help children and families in poverty feel warm, well fed and supported this winter. We're looking for donations of men's and women's clothing, and toys.
What do you remember about your childhood?
Remember childhood in your Will and you help make sure our work carries on today, tomorrow, and long into the future.
We work to improve the lives of every child and young person in the UK.
We run over 800 services across the UK, working to change the childhoods and lives of the children and families who need it most. We do this through counselling and long term support for children who have been abused, supported lodgings for care leavers, vocational training for young people, short breaks for young carers and many other vital services.
Every Barnardo's service is different but they all believe in the potential of every child and young person, no matter who they are or what they have been through.
Every £1 you donate will help us change a child's life.

For every pound we spend (excluding retail costs) approximately:
94p goes on working with the children and young people who need it most
Less than 1p goes on investment management costs
And the remaining amount – just over 5p - on raising the next £1
