Barnardos is one of New Zealand's largest & most respected children’s charities. We work with the most vulnerable children in our community.
We are there when families need us most. We provide urgent, intensive and vital social services that respond directly to the needs of the children and families we support. We work on the frontline with communities who are most at risk, dealing with challenging and complex issues like family violence, child abuse and neglect.
Last year Barnardos helped over 50,000 children and families throughout the country. In all our work, we are committed to growing the capability of families and communities to do things for themselves.
