Why do it for Barnardos?

By supporting Barnardos, you help us to continue delivering our vital services to vulnerable children and families across the country. In today’s Ireland, an estimated 138,000 children (that’s one in eight) are living in consistent poverty – the type of poverty that leaves them without the most basic of needs. For these children and their families daily life is a struggle and our services are vital in making sure they overcome the daily challenges that hold them back so they don’t slip through the cracks. With the incredible support of our donors we can be there to ensure these children have the best start in life and not get left behind.
