Our impact

The difference we're making

There are different ways to determine the impact. Personal stories and numbers.

Our work across Barnardos Child and Family Social Services, Barnardos Early Learning, and our Advocacy all contribute to our vision.

Our work is wide-ranging and ambitious: we look out for children; we listen to children; we nurture and educate children.

We know that children are best brought up in strong and resilient families and whānau. So we support and challenge adults in the lives of children to make our homes and communities safe and nurturing places for children.

Impact stories

Barnardos’ collective efforts have impacted thousands of children’s lives. Our mahi continues to make real, positive change. Read more about our Impact stories.

Impact in numbers

Over the past years, we have influenced and shaped systems so that we impact positively on the needs and rights of children and tamariki in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We've come far since Barnardos first started out in NZ more than 60 years ago.

However, there are still issues we're facing to this day.
