Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic children and families have been disproportionately affected by Covid-19 and are facing significant challenges to their emotional health and wellbeing.
In response to this, Barnardo’s launched a new telephone helpline with a web chat facility, which will provide a service between 1st October 2020 to 30th September 2021.
The Helpline is available between 1 pm and 8 pm Monday to Friday to Black, Asian and Minority Ethnic children and young people between the age 11-25 years and their parents/carers.
The helpline is not just a listening service; it will provide practical and emotional support over the phone/ webchat and also refer onward to specialist community support.
