A government review of procedures to identify children and vulnerable adults at risk of abuse has been published today (Tuesday 29 July).

Several high-profile cases, including the death of four-year-old Daniel Pelka, have highlighted the tragic consequences which can result when information indicating risk is held by one agency and not appropriately shared with others.

Many areas have established Multi Agency Safeguarding Hubs (MASHs) to mitigate the risk of anyone slipping through the safeguarding net, and they and others have requested guidance on best practice.

The report found MASHs support professionals to ‘join the dots’ and understand threats so they can take action to prevent them.
