If you are a parent or carer and believe your child is in need of additional support you can contact the Multi-Agency Support Hub (MASH) to discuss your concerns and find out what support is available: 01481 723182.

If a child you know is at risk of immediate harm, call the Police on 999 0r 112

The MASH can direct you to the most appropriate services for support, can organise multi-agency support if needed and can identify if social work support is required.

You can also access support services through your GP, or other health or education professionals (like health visitors, school nurses and teachers) who can refer for specialist support.
