Barnardo’s emergency appeal during the Covid-19 crisis has helped us support thousands of children, young people and families throughout our services across England. We continue to provide that vital support to children and young people today. 

In addition, the See, Hear, Respond Partnership of more than 80 organisations, supported by the Department for Education and led by Barnardo’s, was able to respond to thousands of vulnerable children and young people that you referred to us.   

The Partnership was able to support over 85,000 children, young people and families between its launch in June 2020 and 31 March 2021, when funding ceased.  This is almost double the original objective and an incredible result, thanks to a hard-working partnership between many organisations and services, including schools, the NHS, local government and the police.
