If it is an emergency, please call the police on 999 or 112.

If you work with children in Guernsey or Alderney and believe a child you work with is in need of additional support, you should make enquiries to the Multi-Agency Support Hub (MASH) in writing using the MASH enquiry form. If you are aware that the child has a social worker you should contact them directly.

If you believe a child is being mistreated and is at risk of harm, please contact the MASH team as soon as possible on 01481 223182.
