Under the Criminal Justice Act 2003, all local authorities must have arrangements in place to identify and manage individuals who have been convicted of certain sexual and violent offences and who may pose a risk to the public through re-offending once they are released into the community. These arrangements are known as Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA).
FSSW has a role in co-ordinating responses around adults who pose a risk to children when:
- an adult who is subject to MAPPA processes is related or known to a family with young children living in Camden or:
- concerns about a person in contact with a family are such that FSSW believes the individual should be subject to MAPP arrangements in order to safeguard children.
