Our charity partner is Barnardo’s
In 2017, we raised £19,082.
Thank you to everyone for supporting this cause and please help us to reach our target of £20,000 at our awards events during 2018.
In 2016-17, Barnardo’s supported 272,000 vulnerable children, young people and carers.
Barnardo’s is the largest provider of child sexual exploitation (CSE) support in the UK. We have worked with sexually exploited children and young people for more than 20 years, and have specialist services in over 40 locations. Our vision is that no child should be affected by sexual exploitation, but more children than ever before need us. ‘Barnardo’s helped me realise what was happening, and then they helped me escape. The worker helped me mend the broken relationship with my mum and get the whole family back on track’

YOU CAN MAKE
We have set a target of £20,000 in 2018 which would provide 200 1-1 counselling sessions in specialist services throughout the uk to help children who have been victims of sexual exploitation deal with the trauma they have experienced. Giving these children a chance to move forward, regain their self esteem and get their life back.
How we protect
Barnardo’s runs projects across the country supporting children, young people and families where abuse has happened. We are the largest provider of child sexual exploitation support in the UK. Help us protect sexually exploited and abused children.
How we support
We give flexible support to vulnerable children facing a range of difficulties, like a family member with a disability. Help us support disadvantaged families.
How we nurture
We provide early support to families because prevention is better than cure. What we learn from children early on helps us identify wider issues and how to tackle them. Help us nurture struggling young families.
