Barnardo's believes in children regardless of their circumstances, gender, race, disability or behaviour. Whatever the issue, from drug misuse to disability; youth crime to mental health; sexual abuse to domestic violence; poverty to homelessness; Barnardo's believes we can bring out the best in every child.

We run over 1000 local projects around the UK, working directly with over 301,000 children, young people and their famillies every year.
