Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) Data Solution

Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) Data Solution

Improving child protection through accurate, integrated agency data

Coordinated support driven by a holistic understanding of risk

Sentinel’s MASH solution enables more effective child safeguarding by providing real-time access to accurate, unified inter-agency information.

Integrating and storing data that core partners are able to share, the secure Hub enhances collaborative working, providing a 360-degree case view of current and emerging risk. This empowers agencies, and those working at the front door of support services, to make the correct decisions sooner and ensure the most vulerable receive the support they need.

Urgent cases can be prioritised and resource used most effectively, with users having seamless access to all known family and case information, including up-to-date timelines.

Safeguarding teams can be more proactive as the software automatically alerts them to increased risks based on data scenarios and rules that they define. For example; alerts based on the number of A&E visits combined with unauthorised school absence or missed appointments with social workers.

The Hub maintains a complete audit trail with user-friendly dashboards providing full visibility of the status of every referral or live case and enabling response time SLAs to be monitored and managed.
