What is a MASH?
The Adults Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub is a team of professionals from a range of organisations and agencies who work together to protect adults who may be at risk of abuse, harm or neglect.
The MASH aims to improve the responses to safeguarding concerns through stronger links and better information sharing between organisations and agencies to lead to better outcomes for adults.
