About MASH

Bracknell Forest MASH is the single point of contact for all safeguarding concerns regarding children and young people living in Bracknell. The MASH brings together a team of professionals from a number of partner agencies to deal with all safeguarding concerns for a child/young person.

Within the MASH, information from partner agencies will be collated to assess risk and decide what action to take. As a result, the agencies will be able to act quickly, in a co-ordinated and consistent way, ensuring that vulnerable children and families are kept safe and supported.

The partner agencies include:

  • Children's Social Care (including children with disabilities)
  • Police
  • Health
  • Education
  • Youth Offending Service
  • Probation
  • Early Intervention
  • Housing
  • Berkshire Women's Aid
  • DAAT

All partners have signed up to an Information Sharing Agreement that specifies what data can be shared within the MASH, and what happens to that data once a decision is made about the case.
