Barnados launches new service to support at-risk children
Posted on: 24 July 2020
Barnados has launched a new service this week to support vulnerable children and young people who are exposed to even more risk during coronavirus.
It’s called See, Hear, Respond. It’s Government-funded, and it brings together a coalition of national and local charities to identify and support vulnerable young people.
The aim is to provide early intervention before children reach a threshold for significant harm, where statutory services become involved.
If you think that a child is in immediate risk of harm, call 999. If you have concerns about a child’s health or wellbeing, you can report it anonymously to Devon’s Multi agency Safeguarding Hub on 0345 155 1071 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
To find out more or to report a concern to See, Hear, Respond, visit the Barnados website. A helpline is available for parents/carers/children wishing to make a referral or for more information. Please call 0800 157 7015.
