We live in a society where there is increasing focus and media attention to those who commit sexual or violent crimes, especially against children and young people.  The impact for victims and the wider community is profound and keeping the public safe is a key priority for the Government.

Multi Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) established ground breaking partnership arrangements to assess and manage the risks posed by sexual, violent and other dangerous offenders, drawing on the contribution of a wide range of agencies

It is therefore important for multi-agency professionals to have an understanding of these arrangements and the implications for practice to promote the safeguarding of children and other vulnerable victims.

The course will explore what is meant by risk in this context and how it is assessed and managed within the framework of MAPPA

The emphasis will be to encourage a partnership approach, enabling delegates to make a positive contribution in tackling this problem and supporting preventative initiatives.

What will I learn?

By the end of the course delegates will have an understanding of:

  • What is MAPPA and which offenders are managed under MAPPA
  • Risk Assessment and Risk Management
  • Information Sharing and Disclosure
  • Duty to Cooperate Agencies
  • How does MAPPA operate locally
