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
  • education
  • housing
  • substance misuse and community drug and alcohol team
  • probation and community rehabilitation
  • health
  • early help services
  • mental health services
