How to report concerns

Coronavirus - Temporary Arrangements for EHaSH and Early Help and Prevention 

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.

During the ongoing situation with coronavirus (COVID-19), help and advice is available to ensure the safety and well-being of children and families.

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

Email: fish@eastriding.gov.uk. 

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.

During office hours (Monday to Thursday08.30am  and 5pm, Friday 8.30 am-4.30pm), you can contact EHaSH by telephone on:
