Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH)
The local authority and partners have been working together to establish a Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) in Southwark.
The MASH brings together a team of multi disciplinary professionals from partner agencies into the same room to deal with all safeguarding concerns, where someone is concerned about the safety or well being of a child.
Within MASH, information from partner agencies is collated to assess risk and decide what action to take. As a result, the agencies will be able to act quickly, in a coordinated and consistent way, ensuring that vulnerable children and families are kept safe from harm.
The MASH will replace a range of existing referral points and allow agencies to build upon the work that's already been taking place in working more closely together.
The MASH Leaflet for Professionals (pdf, 104kb) provides an overview of MASH.
The MASH leaflet for parents / carers will be available soon.
