Budget 2020

Every year Barnardos makes recommendations to the Government as to how public funds could be best spent to support children. Barnardos believes that there should be a combination of increased availability of quality public services and sufficient household income.

Barnardos Children’s Budget 2020 sets out what the government must do in Budget 2020 in order to ensure that every vulnerable child:

  • gets help when they need it;
  • is safe, has enough food and somewhere comfortable to call home;
  • has the opportunity to learn and have fun.

In March 2019, Barnardos commissioned Just Economics to undertake research on why investment is needed now to ensure the sustainability of quality services for children and families.
