About the course

MAPPA is a framework of statutory arrangements introduced by the Criminal Justice Act (CJA) 2003 and operated by criminal justice and social care agencies.  MAPPA arrangements enable these agencies to work together to reduce the risk to the public of further offending presented by sexual and violent offenders.  This is done by sharing information to produce a coordinated risk management plan that will allow offenders to be effectively managed in the community.

Mental health practitioners /trusts have a duty to cooperate with MAPPA and share information about patients that is relevant to the statutory purposes of assessing and managing risk.

Guidance regarding Mentally Disordered Offenders and MAPPA was updated in March 2019.  

This course aims to familiarise mental health and social care staff with MAPPA processes and their roles and responsibilities within them. The latest guidance will be included, making this course relevant not only to new learners but also those who already have a good working knowledge of the subject.  

The course will cover the following topics:

  • Introduction: What is MAPPA?
  • Latest MAPPA Guidelines
  • Case Examples (small group exercise); when and how to make a referral to MAPPA
  • The Four Pillars Approach to Risk Management
  • Small group exercise : Formulating risk management plans
  • The role of the Victim Liaison Officer
  • Question and answer session
