Please advise how many children and young people seen to be living with a disability or health condition, whether formally diagnosed or not, have been the subject of a MASH enquiry over the last five years? 


If possible, please further break this information down by disability or condition such as physical, neuro diverse, learning disability and mental health.


Of these enquiries, how many led to further interventions, and if so, what actions were taken such as no further action, further assessment, safeguarding assessment, family support from Child Development Team or Complex Needs Social Work Team?



Over the last five years a total of 185 children and young people have been the subject of a MASH Enquiry where indicators for either ‘Learning Disability/Difficulty’ or ‘Physical disability or illness’ have been recorded. Indicators for other disabilities or health conditions are not currently recorded.


Out of the 185 children and young people that were subject to a MASH enquiry over the last five years, 164 were recorded as having a ‘Learning Disability/Difficulty’ and 31 were recorded as having a ‘Physical disability or illness’. These are the only categories recorded therefore we are unable to provide a further breakdown.

Please note the total for the indicators could be more than the children as they can have more than one indicator identified. In this case they will have both ‘Learning Disability/Difficulty’ and ‘Physical disability or illness’ identified.


A total of 203 enquiries were received over the 5-year period for the 185 children and young people (children and young people may have been subject to more than 1 enquiry over the period) with the breakdown of those outcomes shown below:
