Christmas is a magical time.

While many of us can’t wait to join family and friends for festive rituals and joy, many vulnerable children don’t feel part of the fun – because of poverty, mental health issues or their family circumstances.  

There is a way that you can help a child feel included in the magic.  

Support Kidsmas, with Barnardo’s, and you could help a vulnerable child feel warm and welcomed. Your kindness could mean delicious, warming food, a special party where new friendships can be made or expert support that can mean a happier Christmas and a brighter future. 

Cara's story

girl smiles in her bedroom

  • Christmas time means so much to children but for many children and families living in poverty, the festive season often means no food on the table and no joy. 
  • It was devastating when Cara said that Christmas, ‘was just something to get through’. Those are words no child should say.
