Proudly supporting our charity partner: Barnardo's

We’ve teamed up with Barnardo’s, a leading charity committed to helping vulnerable children and young people across the UK.

Did you know that one in three young people leaving the care system experience homelessness within two years? That’s why we’re proud to partner with Barnardo’s to provide crucial support to those transitioning out of care.

Together, we’re building brighter tomorrows

Over the next three years, we pledge to contribute a minimum of £300,000 to Barnardo’s. But it doesn’t stop there. We’ll also be offering our expertise to help deliver housing support, career advice and financial education, empowering young people to take charge of their futures.

Child poverty is growing fast within the UK. We currently reach 400,000 children and young people each year, and with this support pledged by Leeds Building Society we can continue on our mission to change childhoods and ensure that we never turn a child away.

The future can feel so uncertain to care-experienced people. Many care leavers carry burdens that young shoulders shouldn’t have to bear, and through this partnership and the fundraising by Leeds Building Society’s colleagues and members we hope to make a big difference to the futures of these young people.
