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

It is a new UK-wide helpline which will focus on issues specifically affecting children, young people and families from Black, Asian and minority ethnic communities, many of whom have been particularly hit by the pandemic. As well as the free telephone helpline, there is a web chat facility.

Barnardo’s specialist advisors will aim to 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.
