This evidence review was commissioned by Barnardo’s to accompany the evaluation of See, Hear, Respond (SHR) England programme, that is funded by the Department for Education to support children and young people adversely affected by COVID-19 and the consequent lockdown.
This research builds on the real-time evaluation of See Hear Respond England carried out by Cordis Bright between July 2020 and January 2021, which was a theory-driven process and impact evaluation. The evaluation consulted key programme stakeholders and staff; children and young people who were supported by the programme, and their parents and carers; and delivery partners.
This report is an independent process and impact evaluation of See, Hear, Respond (SHR) England programme, that is funded by the Department for Education to support children and young people adversely affected by COVID-19 and the consequent lockdown.
In this report, we review evidence on the impact the first wave of the COVID-19 pandemic and associated lockdown had on children, young people, and families, with a particular focus on those for whom the unique circumstances of the crisis exacerbated existing challenges and inequalities, and provide examples of how Barnardo’s responded, through working in partnership with children and young people, our partners, governments, and other decision makers. The report draws on our learning from this period to identify the key steps required to support children and families in the future – driven by four key principles: innovation; working in partnership; long-term thinking and investment; and, co-production with children and young people.
The evaluation and learning partner for the Mental Health and Wellbeing Core Priority Programme, Mental Health Foundation and Strathclyde University, were commissioned to complete a review of interventions and responses to bereavement, loss and grief.
This report sets out the learning from the first year of the Children’s Innovation Partnership (CIP) between Leicestershire County Council (LCC) and Barnardo’s. The aim is to inform subsequent phases of development and disseminate learning from innovation within the partner organisations and amongst wider stakeholders in the sector.
Undocumented children face a range of circumstances that impact on their emotional health and wellbeing. Children and their families are often living under the shadow of their immigration status, with a heightened risk of poverty, ill health and exploitation, and limited access to services.
The Tavistock Institute of Human Relations were commissioned to undertake an evaluation of one of Barnardo’s Core Priority Programmes (CPP) ‘Care Journeys’ focussing on outcomes for care experienced young people.
