We are facing an unprecedented situation and children and young people are understandably worried, as well as being vulnerable to other risks whilst they are not in a nursery and the school environment.

If you have a concern about COVID-19 or require information about support from early help services or sources of self-help then contact the FISH team on 

If you need to make a safeguarding referral about a child or young person who is at risk of harm, abuse or neglect or who has significant vulnerabilities they should be referred to children’s social care.
