Barnardo’s ‘See Hear Respond’ service

See Hear Respond is a service provided across England by Barnardo’s and other national and local community-based organisations in response to the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak.

The programme has been created to help children and young people in England who are experiencing harm and increased adversity during this period by providing support to those who are not being seen by social care or other key agencies.

Working with its partners, Barnardo’s aims to reduce the likelihood of harm and ensure other support and protective networks are in place using:

·       online digital support, including advice and information, online counselling and a telephone helpline

·       face to face interventions, such as support for groups at risk outside the home and one to one support

·       reintegration into education, including assessments and the delivery of support pathways back to education

See Hear Respond accept referrals from any source either through the Freephone number 0800 151 7015 and via the online referral hub.

Feeling concerned or overwhelmed by the news around coronavirus is understandable, especially if you are struggling with your mental health. OpenMinds Calderdale have added a fantastic section on their website bringing together a range of resources to support the emotional wellbeing of children and young people and their families at this difficult time.
