Barnardos NEWv2

Barnardo's works to transform the lives of vulnerable and neglected children throughout the UK. 2016 commemorates the charity's 150 anniversary. 

Our work is needed more that ever. Last year we helped over 248,000 children, young people and their families directly through 966 vital projects across the UK. We are there to ensure safer childhoods, stronger families and positive futures for the UK's most vulnerable children. 

We believe in children regardless of their circumstances, gender, race, disability or behaviour. We believe in the abused, the most vulnerable, the forgotten and the neglected. We will support them, stand up for them and bring out the best in each and every child. We do this because we believe that every child deserves the best start in life and the chance to fulfill their potential. 

To deliver our services we rely on the generosity of the public. Legacies, the money our kind and generous supporters leave to Barnardo's in their Wills, are our lifeblood, accounting for almost £1 in every £2 we receive in donations. By remembering Barnardo's in your Will, you will leave a vulnerable child someone to turn to in the future. 

We believe no child should have no one to turn to. Not now. Not ever.
