Rapid support for children and young people affected by the coronavirus crisis (Barnardos/DfE)
Barnardos has launched a new scheme to help young people affected by the coronavirus crisis. The See, Hear, Respond Partnership will quickly identify and support children, young people and families who are struggling to cope with the impacts of coronavirus. Its aim is to provide early intervention before these children reach the threshold for statutory intervention.
Barnardos say they ‘especially want to invite referrals for families who are most isolated from support due to Covid-19, including:
Under 5s with a specific focus on under 2s
- Those with Special Educational Needs and Disabilities and where there are concerns about their welfare e.g. online safety
- Children and young people experiencing anxiety, stress and other mental health difficulties
- Children who may be at increased risk of abuse, neglect and exploitation inside or outside of the home
- Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee children who experience barriers to accessing services
- Young carers
