How to make an online referral
Professionals should use the new online referral form to submit safeguarding concerns to the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH).
This is a much more secure and efficient way of submitting a referral and will also give you a reference number on submission. The online form should be used instead of Word or PDF versions of the form whenever possible.
Before submitting the online form, please see the Guidance for Professionals Concerned About A Child webpage on the Northamptonshire County Council website - this provides the relevant part of the Thresholds and Pathways guidance that helps you to identify the child's level of risk and whether the child should have an Early Help Assessment or be referred to the MASH.
Once you are sure that a referral is appropriate, you can complete the online referral form.
Once submitted you can save or print the online referral form the below instructions provide details on how you can do this.
