Delivering positive futures for the UK’s most vulnerable young people and families

Barnardo’s partnership with Amazon has been growing since 2019, with a host of initiatives bringing to life our shared goals of delivering a positive impact in our local communities.

We are excited to have launched our innovative employability programme this year which is transforming the lives of vulnerable young people including care leavers. The Barnardo’s Amazon Academy helps unemployed young people to overcome personal challenges, identify what they want to achieve in life and how they can get there – with 100% of young people supported through the programme to date moving into employment including with Amazon.

​​​I would be sitting at home, doing absolutely nothing but just play games, this was not helping myself in anyway and in fact making myself worse and unstable at times. I have learned more within the 12 weeks I have been here than I have in 15 years of education.

In addition to this programme, Amazon’s support of Barnardo’s Kidsmas campaign has brought festive joy and cheer to thousands of the most vulnerable children, young people and families across the UK, and provided essentials for those experiencing incredibly challenging circumstances during lockdown. Find out what we achieved through working together on our Kidsmas campaign in 2020 here, and you can also sign up to support Barnardo’s through Amazon Smile here.
