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.
