Everyone can raise money for children – all you need is enthusiasm!
Every £1 you raise will help fund our vital work to help the UK's most vulnerable children transform their lives.
You'll be joining a community of like-minded people, all having fun together to improve young lives.

Raise money at school and in your community

Join a Barnardo's fundraising group
It's easier to plan your fundraising when you're with other people. When you join one of our fundraising groups you're be part of a friendly team, supported by a local Barnardo's fundraising manager.
Together you'll be able to organise target-busting activities that are as engaging as they are effective.
To find out if there's a fundraising group in your community or workplace, call us on 0800 008 7005, or fill in our contact form.
Some people find it easiest to attract support for their fundraising activity by setting up a page on a website like JustGiving or Virgin Money Giving. You can email friends a link to your page so they can contribute. It's an easy way to tell your friends, family and colleagues about what you're doing – especially if you use social media to spread the word. You can keep your pages updated with your progress, and at the end of your fundraising, the funds will transfer to us automatically.
How we fundraise
We're committed to:
- being completely transparent about how we raise money
- making it easy for you to tell us if you are unhappy about the ways we raise money
