If you are concerned about a child in Guernsey or Alderney

If you are a member of the public who has concerns about a child's welfare or safety, and if that child is in Guernsey or Alderney, call a children's services social worker on 01481 223182. Out of office hours, contact the Emergency Duty Team on 01481 222222

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. If the matter is urgent and outside of office hours you can contact the duty social worker on 01481 222222. If you think a child is in immediate danger please call the police.

May 2023- Harmful Sexual Behaviour Multi Agency Framework now operational 

The framework is part of the response following on from the NSPCC audit of the Islands' response to HSB, commissioned by the ISCP.

Findings from the audit included:

The NSPCC presented a suggested action plan which was adopted by the Steering committee led by Jo Ogier. Jo with input from the group, developed the framework as a key part of implementing the action plan.  The subsequent appointment of Savannah Goddard as HSB co-ordinator, ensured that all relevant agencies were consulted and had input into this final document. This new document will give clarity to and strengthen multi agency working within this important area.

In addition to the Framework, the Partnership has rolled out multi agency training, Developing an Understanding of Harmful Sexual Behaviour,for all professionals in the statutory and third sector. We will also shortly be rolling out training in the use of the Brook Tool which is a key part in identifying, understanding and responding appropriately to sexual behaviours.

For further information relating to training please go to My Learning or if you do not have access to the site or require further information, please contact the Inter-Agency Training Co-ordinator,
