AbstractBarnardos has been delivering quality, evidenced based services, providing practical and emotional supports to children, parents and families for almost 60 years. In 2019 we worked with more than 17,000 children and families across our 41 centres, including seven early years services. Our vision is a country where every child can reach their full potential. The children that Barnardos work with experience social and emotional loss, neglect and abuse due to: a lack of parental capacity; social isolation; bullying; acrimonious separation; domestic abuse; mental health issues; and alcohol or drug misuse or addiction. Barnardos also develops evidenced based best practice resources, mentoring and training for the early years sector. This experience as well as our role as a provider of high quality early years services to families gives us a unique perspective.
