Our support to families through Covid-19

During these challenging times Barnardo’s Cymru continues to support vulnerable children, young people and families who need us now more than ever.

We have come up with innovative ways of delivering services online and by phone to ensure they get the help they need while we also comply with Welsh Government guidance.

In addition we have responded directly to the challenges of Covid-19 by launching See, Hear, Respond service which provides therapeutic support including counselling and practical advice.

Any family in Wales affected by Covid-19, and the related restrictions, and looking for support and guidance at this time can self-refer by contacting: 0800 157 7015 or visit the website.

We have also launched the Boloh helpline for children from Black, Asian and other minority ethnic backgrounds. The contact number is 0800 151 2605 or visit the website.

We thank all our partners, local authority and others, for helping us to continue our work. If you are able to help with a donation you can do so here.

Helping children in Wales for more than a century

We work with vulnerable children, young people, families and communities across Wales, helping them to build a better future.

Our aim is to reach out to the most disadvantaged children in the country to ensure that every child has the best possible start in life and can reach their full potential. 

Barnardo’s Cymru believes that every child deserves a happy and healthy childhood, no matter who they are or what they have been through.

We provide various services across Wales. Find out about our work with:

Barnardo’s Cymru policy and research unit

As well as providing direct support through our services, we aim to influence policy and practice so that vulnerable children, young people and families in Wales can access their rights and fulfill their potential.

Our research seeks to provide children with a voice to contribute to improvements in policies that impact their lives. It is based on our direct work with young people and we often use creative qualitative methods to ensure their meaningful involvement.

We then use this research to campaign at Welsh Government and local authority level.
