Safeguarding is the action that is taken to promote the welfare of children and protect them from harm.

Safeguarding means:

  • Protecting children from abuse and maltreatment
  • Preventing harm to children’s health or development
  • Ensuring children grow up with the provision of safe and effective care
  • Taking action to enable all children and young people to have the best outcomes.

If you have concerns about the welfare of a child then this should be reported to the Milton Keynes Multi Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) on 01908 253169 / 01908 253170.
