Barnardo’s protect, support and nurture the UK’s most vulnerable children.

Barnardo’s have been around for over 150 years. They protect, support and nurture the UK’s most vulnerable children and help bring out the best in them, no matter who they are or what they have been through.

For every £1 donated, they spend 91p on working with the children and young people who most need their help.

UrbanLeaf are fortunate enough to have been working in partnership with Barnardo’s for over  five years. And with over 1000 services helping children and young people, there’s a lot of work to be done.

Take mental health and well-being for example. You might already know that many children feel like they have no one to talk to. You can imagine with pressures like bullying, social media, problems at home, or exams, many struggle to cope.

In 2004, 1 in 10 children had a mental health disorder, now it is 1 in 8.  I’m sure you’ll agree this is unacceptable.

As UrbanLeaf fundraisers we inspire members of the public to be part of the solution.

From one-to-one counselling to group work and schools-based programmes, Barnardo’s help children and young people build their confidence and get to the root of their difficulties

Together we can fight to make sure that no child suffers alone.
