Barnardos Annual Report

In 2020 we spent over €24 million working with more than 17,000 children and families.

Our annual report outlines how we did this.

None of this would have been possible without the enthusiasm and generosity of our supporters, staff and volunteers – to whom we are extremely grateful.

For Every Euro Barnardos Spends

Of every €1 we spent in 2020, 82 cent was spent directly on our work with children and families, 11 cent was invested in generating funds, 7 cent on retail stores and other activities.

The annual accounts of Barnardos are prepared in accordance with the Charities SORP (Statement of Recommended Practice) and are published annually.

No top up payments are made to Barnardos employees. Barnardos Board members and the chairman of the Board are volunteers and donate freely of their time, skills and experience.
