Barnardos Friendly Giants

Working together to change the world for thousands of children

No child or young person should be left to struggle alone without support. As a Barnardos Friendly Giant you will be a constant presence in so many children's lives: making their days, and their futures, immeasurably brighter.

A regular monthly donation to Barnardos will help change the world for thousands of children in Ireland who are living with the effects of disadvantage and inequality; children who are living without the opportunities in life that they all deserve.

We need all the Barnardos Friendly Giants we can find

We rely heavily on Barnardos Friendly Giants to help us provide effective services for children and families when and where they are needed. Your regular monthly gift will mean more than just financial support though. For the children we work with having your support means they will know that there are people who want to help them, people who believe in them and their future. That moral support means so much.

How your regular gift can help vulnerable children

  • €7 per month could provide an educational toy for a child who has no toys of their own.
  • €10 per month could provide a week's worth of warm, nutritious breakfasts for children at one of our Breakfast Clubs.
  • €21 per month could provide essential counselling for a child who has been left bereaved.

To donate monthly

Our promises to you

  • We will make sure your money is well spent

You've entrusted us with your monthly donation, and we can assure you that it is always used in the most effective way possible. Your money will help provide important services for disadvantaged children and their families across Ireland. If you ever have any concerns about how we are spending your money, please do not hesitate to give us a call on 01 453 0355

  • We will respect your privacy

We will never trade your personal information with anyone else.  For further detail on how we use your data, please see our Privacy Statement (update link)

  • We will respect your choice

We understand that your time is precious, so we won't bombard you with mail. As a Barnardos Friendly Giant we would like to send you updates on the impact of your support. And from time to time – for instance, at Christmas – we may send you special appeals. But if you'd rather not hear from us at all, just let us know.

  • We will answer any questions you have

If you ever have any questions about Barnardos, simply pick up the phone (01 453 0355) or drop us an email.

  • We won't give up

We see no reason why Ireland can't be the best place in the world to be a child. Our children deserve no less. But today over 130,000 children live in consistent poverty. Therefore, we will continue to work until every child in Ireland is cherished equally.
