In 2017-18, Barnardo’s worked with 301,100 children, young people, parents and carers – an eleven per cent increase from the 272,300 we worked with in 2016-17 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
Every Barnardo’s service is different and our dedicated staff and volunteers tailor every service to meet the individual needs of children, but each has one vital thing in common: a belief in the potential of every child and young person to thrive – no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through.
What remains steadfast is our promise to children. From respite for young carers and children with disabilities, to expert therapies for the victims of abuse, we are here for children, always.
