The Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) is the front door to Children's Social Care. All referrals come into the MASH and we triage how best to help children and their families. MASH are also an assessment team who undertake home visits and then complete the Children and Families Assessment and undertake child protection enquiries. The work is short term as those needing longer term support transfer from the MASH following assessment.
