Barnardos See, Hear, Respond

Tuesday, November 17, 2020 - 15:00 to Sunday, February 28, 2021 - 15:00

See Hear Respond is a partnership to help children, young people and families cope with the Covid-19 crisis.

About See, Hear, Respond

The See, Hear, Respond Partnership is a new service funded by the Department for Education.  With your help, 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.

See, Hear, Respond does not replace your usual referral process for children who meet a statutory threshold for significant harm: such referrals must be made to your local authority safeguarding team using your usual safeguarding procedures. To refer someone into the See Hear Respond service, or if you're a member of the public, please choose from one of our links below.

The See, Hear, Respond Partnership has been created specifically to help children and young people in England who are experiencing harm and increased adversity during coronavirus, by providing support to those who are not being seen by schools or other key agencies. There is no minimum threshold for referral. We will support children from pre-birth up to 18 years of age and those with special educational needs under the age of 25.

See, Hear, Respond will contact every referral made to us, so no child gets missed.  We’ll then find a partner best placed to support the most isolated and at risk children in your area.

They’ll get help in one or more of four ways: an online hub of support and information, online counselling and therapy, face-to-face support for those most affected and at risk of some of today’s most pertinent issues, such as criminal exploitation, and helping children and young people reintegrate back into school.
