This month a number of publications highlight the significant impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on children and young people. One of the ways that the government is responding is by funding the See Hear Respond programme which brings together a consortium of national and community-based charities led by Barnardo’s to work together to provide assistance to vulnerable children, young people and their families, who have been adversely and disproportionately affected by the COVID-19 pandemic and the lockdown measures that have been implemented in response to the crisis. Cordis Bright has recently been appointed as the independent evaluation partner for the programme and we look forward to helping Barnardo’s and partners understand the early impact of the programme and what works to help protect or improve outcomes.
