How to make an online MASH referral
Professionals should use the online referral form to submit safeguarding concerns to the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).
This is a much more secure and efficient way of submitting a referral and will also give you a reference number on submission. The online form should be used instead of submitting a Word or PDF form whenever possible.
Before submitting the online form, please see the Guidance for Professionals Concerned About A Child webpage on the Northamptonshire Children's Trust's website - this provides the relevant part of the Thresholds guidance that helps you to identify the child's level of risk and whether the child should have an Early Help Assessment or be referred to the MASH.
Once you are sure that a referral is appropriate, you can complete the online MASH referral form.
