Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH)

What will be achieved by the MASH

The MASH will bring the following benefits:

  • faster, more coordinated and consistent responses to safeguarding concerns about children and families
  • an improved ‘journey’ for the child with greater emphasis on early intervention and better informed services provided at the right time
  • greater ability to identify potential vulnerability, enabling more preventative action to be taken, dealing with case before they escalate
  • closer partnership working, clearer accountability and less duplication of effort
  • a reduction in the number of inappropriate referrals and re-referrals to Children’s Social Care
