Barnardo’s is the UKs largest children’s charity.  We help children through the trauma of sexual abuse and exploitation, provide support for young people in care and when they leave the care system; our specialist workers support families through domestic abuse, mental health problems, prison sentences, asylum seeking and much more.


The scale of what we do may be big and complex, but our aim is simple – to provide the best outcome for every child, no matter who they are or what they have been through.  

Across local areas (The West Midlands, Shropshire and Staffordshire) we deliver a range of provision with over 70 staff and 35 volunteers. This includes our HMP Midlands Cluster Children and Family Prison Services.


Using our experience and knowledge of children and families we provide a range of activities aimed at improving the visitor experience, enriching the therapeutic benefits of our play and services, offer direct work to families who may require additional support and deliver fun and informative family days.
