Changing Childhoods. Changing Lives

For over 150 years, Barnardo’s has been here for children and young people who need us most – bringing love, care and hope into their lives and giving them a place where they feel they belong. Barnardo’s is here because too many children and young people across the UK are missing out on a good childhood, and on the opportunity to thrive when they become adults. Some children, families and communities face more challenges on top of this because of structural inequalities and discrimination in society. This can mean they’re more likely to have poor health and fewer chances in life. 

We simply don’t think that’s fair.

And in one of the largest economies in the world, we know we can do better and we’re committed to driving positive change. And as a charity we’ll continue to be here for as long as we’re needed – working with children and young people to be safe, happy, healthy and hopeful. We will never, ever give up on the things that matter to them - and we’ll do everything we can to give them a place where they feel like they belong. 
Regular gifts help us provide essential ongoing support to thousands of children and young people. An ongoing gift from your pay could help us do the following:

£5 a month could help to pay for energy costs.
£8 a month could help pay for activities to improve mental wellbeing.
£10 a month could help provide long-term specialist counselling for a child.
£15 a month could help to feed a family.
