At Barnardos, everything we do is for New Zealand children. 

Child and Family Services

No two families are alike, and every family has their ups and downs.

At Barnardos we support families dealing with some of the worst of those downs. Family violence. Child abuse. Neglect. Addictions. We tackle the hard stuff, supporting families to change and recover.

Early Learning Services

Education matters. It opens doors and creates strong foundations for the future.

Through our Early Learning Programmes, we work with families to provide children with fun, safe and inclusive early learning, laying the foundation for tamariki to shine bright, now and in the future.


We stand strongly for the rights and wellbeing of all children in Aotearoa.

Barnardos works to uplift the voices and experiences of tamariki, rangatahi and families to be heard by decision makers and the wider public, so we can build an Aotearoa where every child can flourish.

Providing support across Aotearoa

Providing support across Aotearoa

Our reach is nationwide and our unique combination of social services and early childhood education means we provide the broadest range of child-centred services in Aotearoa. We work to build relationships and community, with children and their whānau.

Making a lasting difference

Every day, our professional and dedicated staff help build communities where all children are nurtured and supported so they can reach their full potential. We work to make a lasting difference, because too many children in Aotearoa don’t get the opportunities they deserve.
