We want stronger families, safer childhoods and positive futures

We protect, support and nurture the UK's most vulnerable children and young people.

As one of the UK's leading children's charities, Barnardo's works directly with 301,100 children, young people, parents and carers every year, running over 1000 vital services across the UK.

We build stronger families, safer childhoods and positive futures.

We also use our original research, based on the direct work we do, to:

  • influence the government on issues affecting children and young people 
  • raise public awareness of issues affecting children and young people
