Safeguarding Children

If you believe a child is in immediate danger, please call 999 or report a crime on 101.

For any urgent concerns about a child or if you wish to report a concern anonymously, please contact the Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0300 5008080 if you are a member of the public. You can also fill out their online form via their website or email

Please supply as much details as possible relating to the child who you have safeguarding concerns about as this will help MASH to investigate the issue. MASH operates between the hours of 8:30am to 5pm Monday to Thursday and 8:30am to 4:30pm on Friday. If you require an urgent response outside of these hours, contact the Emergency Duty Team (EDT) on 0300 4564546.
