Who to contact if support is needed:
The NSPCC helpline has been expanded. Parents or any adult will be able to call if they want someone to talk to, and they should get in touch if they are worried about a child or young person. Anyone with concerns should call 0808 800 5000 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Anna Freud website has a wealth of information, including advice for families with CYP who don’t want to leave the house and for whom returning to school will be very difficult.
