Reporting Concerns

If you are concerned about a child's welfare or worried they are being abused, you can make a referral to Multi-agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH):

Tel: 0300 456 0108.

Out of Hours Emergency Duty Service: 0845 607 0888 (5.30pm - 9.00am).

The Professional Notification to Social Care Referral Form can also be used to share information with your local office. More information on how to make a referral can be found here.

If you are unsure the Wiltshire Local Safeguarding Children Board Procedures Manual will be able to help guide you or the Multi-Agency Thresholds for Safeguarding which tells you which types of services a family may need to get support.

Alternatively you can call ChildLine for advice on 0800 1111 or email them by visiting www.childline.org.uk.
