One of the UK’s leading children’s charities, Barnardo’s works directly with over 200,000 children, young people and their families every year. Barnardo’s transforms the lives of the most vulnerable children across the UK through the work of our services, campaigning and research expertise. We believe we can bring out the very best in every child whether the issue is child poverty, sexual exploitation, disability or domestic violence. Our knowledge of the local communities we work in allows each of our children’s centres to be a trusted provider of local services, supporting and informing parents and carers.
We are one of the largest charity providers of family placement in the UK and offer a diverse range of services, meeting the ever-changing needs of children and young people. We also understand the needs of children and young people who do not flourish in mainstream education and help them gain the adequate skills to go find work and pursue a career.
