Supporting children and families during the pandemic: A conversation with NSPCC
In this podcast the NSPCC share their experiences of responding to the immediate needs of children and families when the first national lockdown was announced, and what they’ve learned since.
Susannah Bowyer, Assistant Director at Research in Practice, talks to colleagues from the NSPCC about what they’ve learned from supporting children and families during the pandemic.
They share their experiences of responding to the immediate needs of children and families when the first national lockdown was announced, and what they’ve learned since, from providing their services using virtual and digital methods alongside face-to-face work where possible.
This podcast looks at:
- Research the NSPCC has undertaken to understand the impact of the pandemic on the children and families they support, and their frontline practitioners.
- How the NSPCC responded to meet the immediate needs of children and families at the start of the pandemic, and what they’ve done to adapt the support they provide in the face of constantly changing circumstances.
- What the NSPCC has learned from delivering services both virtually and using a blended model of virtual and face-to-face support.
