Believe in Me

Barnardo’s believes in children – they have amazed us, inspired us and rewarded us over the last 150 years. With our new campaign ‘Believe in Me’, we want to show the world why children are so incredible, no matter what their circumstances, gender, race, disability or behaviour. 

Through ‘Believe in Me’ we’re giving the children we support their own voice, letting them show people why our work is so important.

‘Believe in Me’ focusses on the transformative effect that believing in children has on their lives and their ability to achieve. It’s a direct appeal form the child to believe in them – as we know that when people believe in children, they start to believe in themselves.

Incredible things happen when you believe in children. Please show you believe in them by supporting our campaign. #BelieveInMe

How we help

We believe a child’s future should never be defined by their past. Barnardo’s is here to support and protect the UK’s most vulnerable children and bring out the best in them no matter who they are or what they have been through.
