We work to improve the lives of every vulnerable child and young person in the UK. We run over 1000 services across the UK, working to build stronger families, safer childhoods and positive futures. We do this through counselling and long term support for children who have been abused, supported lodgings for care leavers, vocational training for young people, and many other vital services. Every Barnardo's service is different but each believes in the potential in every child and young person, no matter who they are, what they have done or what they have been through. Every £1 you donate will help us change a child's life.

“I'd recommend Payroll Giving to anyone. It's simple and safe, it provides direct support in these difficult times for charities that I care about, and it's a great way of giving something back. Every employer should give its employees the chance to get involved.” 
Angus Saer  Director - EMEA Equities
ING Commercial Banking

"At Whitbread we are very proud of our Payroll Giving scheme which is an important part of our broader 'Good Together' CR programme. "Over 20 per cent of our team members have chosen to donate regularly in this way as it's easy and tax efficient. I would encourage every employer to be a force for good by helping their people support the charities of their choice in this way."
Andy Harrison
Whitbread CEO

Payroll Giving is growing rapidly

Payroll Giving has increased from £37 million in 1999/2000, to over £130 million in 2015/2016

There is room for further growth

Only 4% of UK employees participate in Payroll Giving schemes. In the US, the employee participation rate is nearly 35%.

Payroll Giving can make a tremendous difference to UK charities

If we could increase participation to 10% of UK employees, then charities would receive an additional £300 million.

And it's good for business

Research shows that companies which offer Payroll Giving believe it improves the company image, enhances community involvement programmes, and supports employee volunteering.

96% of companies feel that Payroll Giving is something a good employer should offer....

And nearly all said they would like to increase participation levels in their organisations.
