Barnardo’s is the UK’s largest children’s charity: we run over 1000 services in local communities, and supported around 300,000 children, young people and families last year.
We help children through the trauma of sexual abuse and exploitation. We provide support for young people in care – and we don’t forget about them when they leave the care system. We give children caring for a loved one the help and support they deserve.
And that’s not all. Our specialist workers support families through domestic abuse, mental health problems, prison sentences, asylum seeking and much more.
We also amplify the voices of young people to influence Government on the issues that affect their lives, fighting their corner and making sure their voices are heard.
We believe a child’s future should never be defined by their past. We want to transform the lives of millions more vulnerable children in the UK – however difficult the beginning of their story.
