Multi agency safeguarding hub
The Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) is a team made up of officers from the police and the council who aim to protect vulnerable children and young people. They can be contacted via the Report suspected child abuse or exploitation webpage.
The service aims to provide a rapid and effective response to all new safeguarding concerns. This might be where someone is concerned about the safety or wellbeing of a child or young person, or thinks they may be at risk of harm.
If you think that a child is in immediate danger, contact the police emergency line by dialling 999.
If you want to find out about services and support for children and young people, visit the Swindon Local Offer website.
Queries for children who already have a social worker will be forwarded to the most appropriate team.
Accessible and up to date safeguarding information for workers, volunteers, children, young people, parents and carers can also be found by visiting the Swindon Local Safeguarding Children Board (LSCB) website.
