Media partnership 

Barnardos New Zealand are grateful to have been selected as a MediaWorks Foundation National Charity Partner for 2021, alongside the Graeme Dingle Foundation and the Child Cancer Foundation. The Foundation has one simple purpose – to positively change the lives of children and young people in New Zealand. They share our belief that every child and young person in Aotearoa should have the chance to reach their full potential. Over the next year, their support will shine a spotlight on our national children’s helpline, 0800 What’s Up, ensuring children and whānau throughout Aotearoa know they have a safe place to talk about anything. 


"The MediaWorks Foundation has one simple purpose which is to positively change the lives of children and young people in New Zealand, and that's exactly what Barnardos does each and every day. Our support in 2021 will go some way towards ensuring Barnardos continues to do the fantastic work it does for young people throughout the country as well as shining a spotlight on its national children's helpline, 0800 What's Up. It's really exciting we are able to work with Barnardos New Zealand to help our children and young people thrive."
