The RCIPS is advising the public that the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) and RCIPS Family Support Unit (FSU) will be operating out of a new location on the second floor of Crown Square Plaza, Eastern Avenue, beginning on Monday, 30 May. FSU/MASH will remain at the current location through Friday, 27 May.
The move will ensure social workers and police remain working together in the same locality and they will be joined by additional safeguarding partners from education and later health to further improve multi-agency working practices.
The contact numbers for the unit remain the same:
MASH Child Safeguarding Referrals: 945-0545
Toll Free MASH Line: 1-800-534-2273
DCFS Social Workers, who will be allocated cases from the MASH, will now be located at the second floor of Apollo House on Mary Street, and can be reached via phone at 949-0290.
