The Black and Asian family Covid-19 Helpline

Barnardo’s has launched a vital new support service which we believe will make a positive difference to the lives of many Black, Asian and minority ethnic children, young people and their families impacted by Covid-19.

This is a UK-wide helpline, funded by the National Emergenices Trust which will focus on issues specifically affecting children, young people and families from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities. The new service is a free telephone helpline and web chat facility for children, young people and families from these communities who are experiencing the long-lasting and wide-ranging impact of Covid-19. It will provide on-going support on a complex range of issues including mental health, bereavement, family break-down, neglect, back to school, parenting advice, counselling, family stress, discrimination, barriers to services and more.
