If you are looking for advice or support with your child’s wellbeing there are many organisations that help and guide you.


Havering Help line
Havering Council has launched a new free-to-call helpline for residents with urgent needs because of coronavirus. 
The helpline - 0800 368 5201 - is now live and calls will be answered from staff redeployed from other council services. You can call between 8.30am and 6pm. 
We are asking residents with concerns around care, urgent issues around health and wellbeing, lack of access to supplies including food and medicine to call the helpline. 
Residents with less urgent needs or needing advice on other council services should go to the Council's website for a range of contact options. 
You can also email:
