Barnardo’s believes in children regardless of their circumstances, gender, race, disability or behaviour.
We believe in the abused, the vulnerable, the forgotten and the neglected. We will support them, stand up for them and bring out the best in each and every child.
We use the knowledge gained from our direct work with children to campaign for better childcare policy and to champion the rights of every child.
With the right help, committed support and a little belief, even the most vulnerable children can turn their lives around. Barnardo’s is regulated by the Charity Commission. Being a registered charity means that we must always be accountable and transparent.
Services are designed to be preventative and reach children and young people at risk of social exclusion. Some services are geographically based i.e. Banwell, Pill. Funded services for disabled children and black and other minority ethnic families are across North Somerset.
All services and projects operate an open referral process but many take referrals from other professionals and agencies.
