Operation Encompass


Operation Encompass Logo

Operation Encompass is a new initiative which will endeavour to provide support for children and young people who have experienced domestic abuse in their household.

It is a partnership between the Multi-Agency Safeguarding Hub (MASH), Wigan Safeguarding Children’s Board and designated school staff, known as Key Adults. The MASH team will inform Key Adults within schools about any domestic abuse incident where the child has been present or affected.

This will enable schools to take appropriate steps to support our pupils during what could be an emotionally difficult time.
