The See, Hear, Respond Partnership is a new service funded by the Department for Education. The service 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. The service 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 them, so no child gets missed. They will then find a partner best placed to support the most isolated and at risk children in your area. Children will 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.
