Barnardos supports children whose well-being is under threat, by working with them, their families and communities and by campaigning for the rights of children. Barnardos approach is long-term and work with children and families to empower them to change their lives and build a better future.

Speaking at the opening of Better Finglas, Fergus Finlay, Barnardos CEO, said, “Barnardos, as the lead Agency along with all key stakeholders, is delighted to see the launch of Better Finglas today. We all have a vision of a community where all services – voluntary, statutory and community – work together with families to improve the developmental, health and educational outcomes of young children in the area. I would like to thank the Area Based Childhood programme for funding the project and all our partners for their support and involvement in developing the project and getting it off the ground”.
