For Providers, Filing a Maltreatment Report

Report Child Abuse, Neglect or Maltreatment

Massachusetts law requires mandated reporters file a report of child abuse or neglect to the Department of Children and Families anytime there is reasonable cause to believe that a child is suffering abuse, neglect and/or maltreatment. This report is known as a 51A report (referring to Chapter 119, Section 51A of the Massachusetts General Laws).
