EHASH- Requests for support and concerns about a child or young person

If you are worried that a child or young person under the age of 18 is at risk of harm or needs help and support, it is important that you share this with us.

If you believe a child or young person is at immediate risk you should contact the police on 999.

In an emergency or for urgent advice, please contact the Early Help and Safeguarding Hub (EHASH) or the Emergency Duty Team by telephone –

  • EHASH – 01482 448 879 option four
  • Emergency Duty Team – 01482 300 304 (Out of hours)

If your concern does not require an immediate response or if you are seeking support for you and your family, a group of services known as Early Help can support you. More information on these services can be found below. The easiest way to submit the information is via the portal (see link below).

Operation Encompass

Operation Encompass is a Police and Education early intervention safeguarding partnership which supports children and young people exposed to domestic abuse.

Operation Encompass is the reporting to schools before the start of the next school day when a child or young person has been involved or exposed to a domestic abuse incident the previous evening.

The information is given in strict confidence to a school’s Key Adult to enable support to be given dependent on the needs and wishes of the child.

Operation Encompass is a Trauma Informed and Trauma Sensitive charity. We acknowledge and understand the impact of Domestic Abuse as an Adverse Childhood Experience.

Operation Encompass mitigates against the damaged caused by exposure to Domestic Abuse and other ACE’s
