General Queries

Please be advised that the childrenfirst@hse.ie email address is a general email for queries to the HSE Children First National Office, which provides service development and training supports to HSE and HSE Funded and Contracted services, in relation to implementation and compliance with Children First.

For resource management purposes if the email you submitted is in relation to either of the two topics below you will not receive a direct response.


Child Protection or Welfare Concerns:

Please note: While you will not receive a direct reply from this email/office, if the email you submitted indicated a potential risk of harm to a child then the HSE Children First National Office will pass the details received to Tusla to ensure that no child is left at risk. It is still important however that you make a direct report to the appropriate agency.
