MASH

MASH is an umbrella organisation set up to oversee safeguarding concerns for children and young people in Jersey.
 
The Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) is made up from representatives from a number of States’ departments and other bodies whose work includes care for vulnerable children and young people. It provides a single point of contact for any concerns, including enquiries from professionals such as teachers and doctors, or from members of the public and family members.
 
The MASH allows agencies to work together more closely, ensuring that information is shared appropriately, and that responses are timely and coordinated.
 
The setting-up of the MASH in Jersey follows a number of successful launches in different parts of the UK, including a pilot model in Devon and subsequent initiatives in Staffordshire, Norfolk and Birmingham, as well as some London Boroughs.
 
The Jersey MASH involves:
• The Children’s Service
• States of Jersey Police
• Health and Social Services
• Education, Sport and Culture
• Family Nursing and Home Care
 
Staff from these organisations can be contacted by telephone on 519000 or by email at enquiries-MASH@gov.je
They work closely with other bodies, such as Housing and the Probation and After-Care Service. All enquiries are assessed, prioritised and passed on within a specified time frame.
 
MASH working hours are 8:30am- 5pm Monday to Thursday; and 8:30am- 4:30pm on Friday.
An out-of-hours service will operate at other times: the duty social worker can be reached by contacting either the Police on 612612, or via the Hospital Switchboard on 442000.
