Meet our Partners

Barnardos is fortunate to have a number of dedicated charity partners who have made a commitment to support our work with children and families through the investment of their funds, talent and time. These include:

 

Barnardos are delighted to be selected as the Applegreen charity partner for 2016 / 2017. As Ireland's largest independent forecourt retailers, Applegreen staff and customers are making a positive impact on young children in communities across the country by helping to fund Barnardos Early Year Services vulnerable children under the age of five.  You can help support with every shop or fuel purchase you make in Applegreen stations or by donating to the various staff fundraising initiatives across the country.

Toddlebox, brought to you by Cow & Gate growing-up milk, is sponsoring this year's Big Toddle for Barnardos – a fun sponsored walk for toddlers that has become Barnardos' biggest fundraiser and a huge success. Over the past 12 years of the event we have seen 250,229 children taking on the Big Toddle and together they have raised a staggering €3.1 million! Thanks to our sponsor, all of the money raised goes directly to making a real difference to vulnerable children in Ireland.

 

Barnardos have teamed up with Saint-Gobain sites across the country for 2017 and 2018 to help transform the lives of young children in our early year’s services and friendship groups. Staff from Cavan to Dublin and Clare to Kildare will join forces in their fundraising and volunteering efforts to support Barnardos while sharing their skills and expertise in construction.

 

Barnardos are thrilled to be the official Charity partner for the Cadbury Easter Egg Hunt that takes place in Merrion Square Dublin. This ever popular event is a family favourite with big and little kids alike and thanks to the generosity of Cadbury 100% of funds raised come directly to Barnardos to support our services for children and families. Following a successful multi-year Charity Partnership with Mondelez Barnardos were delighted to continue our relationship with the Cadbury brand which also extends to their popular Cadvent campaign at Christmas.

 

In Christmas 2016 Three created the enchanting tale ‘The Girl and the Cloud’ to raise vital funds and awareness for Barnardos. This beautiful story of Anna and her cloud was brought to life by renowned Irish illustrator Mark Wickham. This book was on sale in 3Stores and Eason nationwide.

PaddyO's Cereals have kindly chosen to support Barnardos through the donation of granola and porridge to Barnardos project centres across the country.

ISS, the leading global provider of facility services have selected Barnardos as their Charity of the Year for 2017.

Beko, the popular domestic appliance and consumer electronics brand, have been in partnership with Barnardos since 2015 providing both financial assistance and white goods products to our project centers across the country. Over the last two years Beko have gifted new items such as fridges and microwaves to support our Breakfast Clubs and washing machines and dryers to enable our children’s services provide additional assistance to families we are working with.

 

Barnardos are delighted to be supported by Optel Vision, the pharmaceutical solutions specialist, who share a vision with Barnardos for a better future.
