Worried about a child’s safety?
If you are concerned about the safety of a child in Devon and want to speak to someone, or if you are a child worried about your own safety, contact our Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 0345 155 1071 or email firstname.lastname@example.org and give as much information as you can.
If a child is at immediate risk contact the police on 999.
You can find out more about the MASH along with information about recognising the warning signs of child abuse, finding support and keeping children safe and healthy, on the Devon Children and Families Partnership website.
If you are a professional and want to make a MASH contact with Children’s Social Care, you need to complete the multi-agency enquiry form unless your enquiry is to discuss an allegation made against an adult working with children, in which case you should contact the Local Authority Designated Officer (LADO) service.
