What We Do

Barnardos’ Mission

Our mission is to change the lives of children affected by poverty, neglect, homelessness and loss.

We provide vital services in forgotten communities throughout Ireland. We intervene early to build resilience in children and to strengthen families.

We work with children and families experiencing:

  • Poverty
  • Homelessness
  • Neglect
  • Domestic abuse and violence
  • Parental separation and discord
  • Parental substance abuse
  • Parental mental health difficulties
  • Children exposed to trauma
  • Difficult family dynamics and conflict
  • Children impacted by the Care system
  • Mental health difficulties and self-harm in young people
  • Bereavement and loss

Change a child’s life

By investing in Barnardos you are changing a child’s life and positively shaping future generations.

The services and programmes delivered in a Barnardos centre or in a family’s home are all evidence-based, outcomes-focused and are routinely evaluated.

We are committed to measuring the impact of the work we do with children and parents to ensure real change is achieved.

Barnardos services need investment and public support to reach all of the families who need our help. Please get in touch with our Philanthropy team to get involved.
