Every child should feel safe from harm

Whether in the home, at school, online or in the local community, we support children and young people who have been abused and help them feel safe again. And we reach out to children at risk of harm, giving them the long-term support they need.

Emergencies and Out of Hours Support

If you think a child is in immediate danger, dial 999 or contact your local authority social care department, or the NSPCC.

If you are a child and you need help, call Childline’s 24-hour support service on 0800 11 11.

If you'd like to speak to our Supporter Relationships team during business hours, please call on 0800 008 7005 or email at [email protected]. We’re open Monday-Friday, 9am-5pm. 

If you are concerned about a Barnardo's employee, volunteer or carer, call the relevant national or regional office and speak to a Barnardo's senior manager or children's services representative.
