Fixed Term (secondment) 6-12months Mental Health Associate Practitioner MASH (Band 4)
We have a new and exciting opportunity for an Associate Practitioner to work alongside our Adult Mental Health practitioner in the Multi-agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) based at Guildford Police Station.
What is the MASH?
The Surrey Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH) is the single point of contact for reporting concerns about the safety of a child, young person or adult. It aims to improve the safeguarding response for children and adults at risk of abuse or neglect through better information sharing and high-quality and timely responses.
The Surrey MASH achieves this by bringing together Surrey County Council social care workers, early help services, health workers, the police, and a vast array of virtual partners across Surrey – all under one roof. By being able to share relevant information, the MASH aims to identify need, risk and harm accurately to allow timely and the most appropriate intervention.
The post offers a good variety of experience and opportunities within a supportive, innovative team with a strong value base.
