Children recommended at this stage have a good chance of being invited on a Campus project this summer (if they have come to Campus before, we have reserved a space for them). We can accept recommendations from social workers, Barnardo’s staff and Early Help Teams. Click here:

Campus works to support all children, including those with additional support needs. However, due to a very high number of referrals with high support needs, we are unlikely at this stage to be able to offer any further spaces to children with high support needs or who likely require 1:1. We are sorry for any disappointment this may cause.

We can only accept referrals from children age 6 or over, and have an upper age limit of 13.  This is equivalent to children currently in Year 1 to Year 8.  Children must be age 8 or over to attend the Residential programme but can attend the daily programme from age 6.

We collect children from their homes to attend Campus projects.  As such, we need to restrict the areas that we take referrals from.  We generally only take children from postcodes L1 to L28 and CH41 to CH46.  We will consider other referrals on a case-by-case basis.

Please contact our children’s officer (Lucy) at or on 0870 765 5437 for more information or to discuss a particular child you wish to recommend to attend a project. We can take recommendations over the phone.
