'See, Hear, Respond' - How Can We Support You

'See, Hear, Respond' - How Can We Support You

Young Epilepsy has partnered with Barnardo's as part of the 'See, Hear, Respond' Programme (https://www.barnardos.org.uk/see-hear-respond), funded by the Department of Education to provide targeted support for children and young people with epilepsy, and their families to cope with the impact of Covid-19 and lockdown.

Whether you are a young person struggling with lockdown, or a parent whose child is anxious about returning to school, we are here to support you. We have a team here to help, be it one off support, or if your child could benefit from a few sessions with us virtually, we want to make sure that your family gets the help you need. We are offering advice and support through our specialist caseworkers to discuss what kind of support works for you.

Our video below between a Roy, a senior practitioner at Barnardo's and Young Epilepsy Young Rep, Alice explains more about the programme.
