MASH: Sandwell's new Multi Agency Screening Hub

SWA (Sandwell's Women Aid) is now an integral part of  Sandwell's excellent new Multi-Agency Screening Hub. The MASH is a co-located multi agency team formed to protect children and families who are at risk of harm.

An average of 30 referrals a day come into the team, with our specialist IDVA working alongside partners from Children’s and Adult Social Care, Police, Education, Housing, Health, Probation and more to fully assess risk and take timely action to support each family and prevent abuse, neglect and serious harm.

You can find referral forms and guidance at Sandwell Safeguarding Children Board's website.

To find out more about the MASH, please contact them via email or call the Sandwell Access Team on 0845 351 0131.
