How we work with you

Using your funds wisely, and directing your gift to issues that matter to you is of utmost importance to us. We seek to build long-term lasting relationships and work hand-in-hand together with you on high-impact projects and drive lasting change.

We know that each individual, family or grant-making organisation is unique – and we take a personalised approach by working closely with you to understanding your philanthropic interests.

Understanding your charitable interests is key – as each individual, family or grant-making organisation is unique – and so we take a personalised and tailored approach, and work closely with you. 

Of every £1 we spend, 92p goes on our work. 3p on governance and pension costs and 5p on raising the next £1. When Barnardo’s was founded 154 years ago, our vision was of a world where no child in need was turned away. In 2019-20 we supported work with 358,800 children, young people, parents and carers across the UK.
