Back to school: Barnardo's See, Hear, Respond Hub

A collection of useful resources for families to help them support their children as they return to school.

Barnardos See Hear Respond

Children's charity Barnardo's have created a resource hub as part of their See, Hear, Respond project. This Hub is full of resources for parents to support them through the coronavirus crisis, sharing information on looking after themselves and their children.

The back to school section of the Hub focuses on the return to school after national lockdown, collecting together lots of useful resources for families. 

There are resources for single parents, expecting mothers, families with young carers, parents with pre-existing health conditions, and more. These include simple guidance and information, as well as picture book suggestions and self-assessment tools.
