These words come from Carradine Spring, assistant team manager of adult safeguarding at Swindon, as the borough council prepares to launch its new adult multi-agency safeguarding hub MASH in the autumn. The adult MASH aims to ensure effective, timely communication and information sharing, as well as collaborative working. Its launch comes in response to past incidence where lack of communication and coordination had an impact on safeguarding outcomes at the council. It will give police a physical presence for the first time and allow healthcare teams a virtual presence initially with the prospect of that becoming a physical presence in the future. This focus on continuous assessment and reassessment is also evident in the processes Swindon uses to assess safeguarding cases day to day. The existing adult safeguarding service consists of 18 staff members, comprising social workers, management, and administrative staff, and deals with, between 12 and 20 referrals a day.
