At Barnardo’s we believe in children



At Barnardo’s we believe in children – no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. We will ensure their needs are met and their voices are heard.

We believe children and young people should thrive with the love and support of their families, but recognise that sometimes there can be challenges which prevent this. We have early help, family support and emotional health and wellbeing services which can all be of assistance.

We protect children who have been abused and help them to feel safe again and we also provide fostering, adoption and residential care services for children.

We want young people to achieve the best in life and reach their full potential, so we help those young people who may have a challenging transition into adulthood. We support young people leaving care, help those looking for work or training to build the skills they need and reach out to young people passing through the youth justice system.
