Projects that protect vulnerable children will share more than £12m to help keep them safe during the coronavirus outbreak.

The 14 projects will use the money to protect children most at risk of neglect, violence or exploitation.

This will include providing support for families at risk of domestic abuse, community volunteers to work with families, and continued support for teenagers at risk of exploitation.

The money will also benefit children in care and care leavers, such as giving then unlimited data on their phones for three months so they can stay connected.

Chief social worker for children and families, Isabelle Trowler, said: 'It’s never been more important for children and their families to receive the support they need.

'In the true spirit of dedicated public service it is so heartening to see these projects adapting and continuing to deliver services in times of unprecedented challenge.'
