Barnardos is Ireland’s leading children’s charity. Each year we work directly with over 12,000 children and families throughout Ireland. Barnardos also raises issues through our advocacy programme to make Ireland the best place in the world for all children in Ireland.

Barnardos responds to the real difficulties of families. We meet children's needs, providing services that challenge disadvantage, and offer new hope for children's futures. We have a long tradition of services and we set ourselves high standards. But we could not do it without the support of our many donors, funders, and supporters.


Barnardos supports children and families through providing a number of direct family support services located throughout the country. We also operate a number of national services for children and families – such as the Barnardos Bereavement Counselling service for children and Beacon Guardian ad Litem service – to support children involved in family law proceedings. The National Children’s Resource Centre supports parents and professionals working with children with information, research, training and publications. Our other services include Origins, Adoption Advice Service and Family Welfare Conferences.

We know that Barnardos can’t reach all children in Ireland who may need our support. We are also committed to ensuring that Ireland is the best place in the world to be a child. Barnardos’ experience as a provider of services is critical in adding authority to our increased advocacy. Barnardos is raising its voice is a focused and targeted way to speak on behalf of children and families whose rights are over-looked and whose well-being is under threat.
