The Cheshire East Consultation Service (ChECS) is the ‘front door’ for access to services, support and advice for children and their families, covering early help and support through to child protection.

Phone: 0300 123 5012 (option 3)

Callers will be directed to a Unit Coordinator who will determine if the concerns are related to early help or safeguarding.

You will then be connected to either a Practitioner Support Officer (EHB) for Early Help concerns or a Social Worker (ChECS) for safeguarding concerns. The worker will gather your information and advise you on the next steps.

If you need to contact someone out of hours and believe it to be an emergency that can’t wait, please call the emergency duty team at 0300 123 5022.

If you think a child is in immediate danger, do not delay – call the police on 999.
