Their future is in our hands

There are 1 million children in New Zealand — each and every one of them deserves the opportunity to thrive and reach their full potential.

Do more for Kiwi kids

We do more

For over 60 years, Barnardos has been making a long-lasting, positive difference through our early childhood education and the broadest range of social services.

Last year, we helped create better futures for thousands of our nation's children, young people, families and whānau.

We're on a mission to change lives for the better
