Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub for Hampshire and the Isle of Wight
The Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) provides triage and multi-agency assessment of safeguarding concerns in respect of vulnerable children and adults. It brings together professionals from a range of agencies into a multi-agency team. The MASH team makes assessments and decisions depending on statutory need, child protection or early help. Quicker response times, a co-rodinated approach and better informed decision making ensures that vulnerable children and adults are protected.
