What is the MASH?

Launched in January 2016 and initially focused on safeguarding issues involving children and young people, the MASH (Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub) acts as a central, single point for early help and safeguarding referrals, enabling agencies to carry out timely, joint assessments and agree the most appropriate course of action for the individuals and families concerned.

The contact details for the MASH are as follows:

Adult MASH: 01902 551199.

In an emergency, always dial 999.

All referrals to the MASH are processed and added to the secure Guardian system within an hour of receipt. These are then triaged by MASH managers who will RAG rate them for action.
