We are the UK's largest children's charity

We help transform the lives of the most vulnerable children and young people in the UK.

We listen to them. We believe in them – no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through.

This belief started with our founder Thomas Barnardo, who stood up for the most vulnerable children in society.

Our vision is his vision – a world where no child is turned away.
