Multi agency safeguarding hub
The Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) is the single point of contact for anyone who is concerned about the welfare or well-being of a child or young person. Your query will be forwarded to the appropriate team if the child already has a social worker.
The service aims to provide a rapid and effective service in response to all new safeguarding concerns, 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, please contact the police emergency line by dialling 999.
If you want to find out about Services and Support for Children and Young People, please visit the My Care, My Support website.
Accessible and up to date safeguarding information for workers, volunteers, children, young people, parents and carers can be found by visiting the Swindon LSCB website.
