Benefits of Volunteering

Barnardos volunteers play a key part in the delivery of our services, in our shops, providing administration support, as members of our Board of Director and raising vital funds.

We are deeply grateful for their commitment to helping Barnardos achieve better outcomes for children. Without their dedication and generosity, we could not do the work we do.
