Support young people during the holidays
During lockdown it’s important to support young people and help look after their mental health. Especially during half term.
Help and support is available for parents or guardians on the HealHub – who offer free mental health support for 14 to 25 year olds.
We’re encouraging all parents and guardians to let people know we are there to help them.
Thanks for keeping our 999 lines free
More of you are using our online services for non-emergencies. This is making a huge difference in keeping 999 free for those who need it most, thank you.
Many of the calls we receive can be resolved online. So for all non-emergencies please visit our website first. Here you can speak to us on live chat between 8am and midnight.
If home is not the safest place to be, you can speak to us on live chat where specially trained officers can provide support. Remember, in an emergency always call 999.
We would like to thank you for sticking to the government guidelines and staying at home.
We know it’s tough but we appreciate the huge effort the majority of you are taking.
The single most important action we can all take is to stay at home to protect the NHS and save lives.
More information is available on the government website.
This guidance is the law and we where we need to we will continue to enforce it to keep everyone safe.
