Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH)
The MASH sits within Ealing Children’s Integrated Response Service (ECIRS).
Ealing MASH is a partnership of professionals from the three statutory children's safeguarding agencies (Children’s social care/Police/Health) and other agencies/services that work together to consider safeguarding referrals where the level of risk and need is unclear or complex.
Managers in ECIRS will decide if a referral should be discussed in the MASH meeting.
The MASH helps protect vulnerable children through effective information sharing - done in accordance with data protection legislation and guidance and within the London-wide Multi-Agency Safeguarding Data Sharing Agreement.
