Should you wish to make a referral for a child, young person and their family to access further support, North Yorkshire Multi-Agency Screening Team (MAST) request that you use the below Universal Referral Form to ensure that all relevant information is provided to ensure that the referral can be progressed as effectively as possible and allocated to most appropriate service:


Universal Referral Form

Referrals to the National Referral Mechanism (NRM) should be for all potential victims of trafficking and modern slavery, who can be of any nationality, and may include British national children, such as those trafficked for child sexual exploitation or those trafficked as drug carriers internally in the UK.

Modern slavery, including child trafficking, is child abuse. When an agency comes into contact with a child who may have been exploited or trafficked, Local Authority Children’s Services and the police should be notified immediately. A referral into the NRM does not replace or supersede established child protection processes, which should continue in tandem:

Agency reports for Initial Child Protection Conferences (ICPCs) and Review Child Protection Conferences (RCPCs).

It is essential that these reports are shared with the parents well before the conference to ensure that the family are prepared the meeting.  You may wish to do this at the last Core Group before the Child Protection Conference and then give a verbal update to the Conference to outline any subsequent information.

All reports should be made available to the Chair two working days before the ICPC and five working days before a RCPC:

An Early Help Assessment should be completed when a child, young person, parent/carer or professional is worried that the needs of a child are not being met. An Early Help Assessment can be completed when a professional has consent from the young person and/or their family, when a professional has concerns about the progress or wellbeing of a child, when the needs are wider than your service can address on your own:
