Barnardos provides many services for children and families. Its adoption and fostering services have had a lower profile than other parts of the organisation although they have been active for some time. Barnardos has commissioned the Hadley Centre to conduct a survey of all its current foster carers and those who adopted during the previous five years. The aims are to understand more about the profile of current carers, to explore whether there are regional variations and to understand more about how the reputation of the agency might attract carers.
