Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH)
The Bridgend Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub, or MASH, provides safeguarding services from both the council and our partners across the community in one place.
A MASH provides the opportunity for a higher standard of safeguarding by providing all professionals with more information on which to make better, more informed decisions.
The Bridgend MASH will enable earlier, higher-quality information sharing, analysis and decision-making. We take referrals from both professionals and members of the public.
The Bridgend MASH is made up of people from:
- children’s and adult services
- South Wales Police public protection unit
- substance misuse and community drug and alcohol team
- probation and community rehabilitation
- early help services
- mental health services
