Throughout the Coronavirus crisis we’ve seen more than ever, that when a community comes together, incredible things can happen. There are so many ways you can get involved in your local community to make a difference to the lives of children and young people when they need it most.

Fundraise with your Community Group

Get your youth club, faith group, 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 ideas for you to try. Our expert team will be here to support you in whatever you decide to do, and we’ve got heaps of virtual and in-person ideas too.

Join a Fundraising Group

By joining one of our Fundraising Groups, you’ll be part of a like-minded community determined to make a real difference for vulnerable children across the UK. It’s a great way to have fun and meet new people.

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

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 Community Fundraising team via email with the subject ‘Community Volunteering’.

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 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.
