See, Hear, Respond - Barnardo's Service

See Hear Respond is a service provided across England by Barnardo’s and a group of national and local community-based organisations  in response to Covid-19.

The programme has been created help to children and young people in England who are experiencing harm and increased adversity during lockdown by providing support to those who are not being seen by schools or other key agencies. This work is focused on

  • 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 who maybe at increased risk of abuse, neglect and exploitation inside or outside of the home 
  • Black, Asian, Minority Ethnic and Refugee children experience barriers to accessing services
  • Young carers

Working with our partners we aim 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
