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
You can find more information and a referral form here: https://www.barnardos.org.uk/see-hear-respond
