When a community comes together - incredible things can happen! There are lots of ways you can fundraise in your local community and make a real difference.

Join a Fundraising Group

By joining one of our Fundraising Groups, you'll be part of a friendly team and be supported by your local, Barnardo's Fundraising Manager. 

It’s a great way to bring the community together - whether it’s with work colleagues, friends or a local community group! Joining a fundraising group is a great way to have fun, meet new people and raise vital funds for vulnerable children across the UK.

To find your nearest Fundraising Group or start your own, please contact us via email.

Hold a Collection Box

Small change can make a big difference. 

Order a Barnardo’s collection box for your home, business or local community and can help raise vital funds for vulnerable children. Don’t forget to let friends, family and customers know so they have the chance to donate whenever they come through your door. 

To order a collection box, please contact us via email.

Fundraise with your Community Group

Fundraising is more fun when it’s shared! 

Get your youth club, community group or local organisation involved, and make a difference to vulnerable children, together. From quizzes to fetes, coffee mornings to team challenges, there are so many fun-filled fundraising ideas for you to try. Whatever your group decides to do, our local team will be here to support you. 

Become a Volunteer 

Our community of dedicated volunteers help us to raise awareness of the issues faced by vulnerable children and young people, and share what Barnardo’s is doing to support their local community. 

Volunteering is the perfect opportunity to hone your speaking skills, encourage public awareness of the challenges children and young people face and help raise vital funds.

To find out more about becoming a volunteer get in touch with our friendly Supporter Relations team via email with the subject ‘Community Volunteering’.
