Barnardo’s publications
Barnardo’s provides a range of resources – from reports to videos – which offer advice
and guidance to all those involved in the care of children, whether they are policy
makers, childcare practitioners or parents.
Written by experts in their field, these include the latest research and information on
topics such as fostering and adoption, preventing child abuse and tackling the causes and
effects of child poverty.
Barnardo’s has a special interest in evidence-based practice: that is, finding out what
works and ensuring that the interventions we and others make in children’s lives are as
good as they possibly can be.
To help you find the subject you’re looking for in this catalogue, our publications and other
resources have been divided into broad subject categories, as listed on pages 2 and 3.The
centre pages form two detachable order forms which can be photocopied and also act as
an index.
Barnardo’s vision is that the lives of all children and
young people should be free from poverty, abuse and
