RISK MANAGEMENT MEETING FOR:

CONFIDENTIALITY STATEMENT

In working with offenders, victims and other members of the public, all agencies have agreed boundaries of confidentiality.

The agencies within this meeting respect those boundaries and hold the meeting under the shared understanding that:

  • It is called in circumstances where it is considered that the risk presented by the subject of the meeting is so great that issues of public or individual safety outweigh those of confidentiality.
  • The disclosure of information outside the meeting, beyond that agreed at the meeting, will be considered as a breach of the subject's confidentiality and a breach of the confidentiality of the agencies involved.
  • All documents should be appropriately marked using the relevant Government Security Classifications.
  • If the consent to disclose is considered essential, permission should be sought from the Chair of the meeting, and a decision will be made on the overriding principle of a public safety, "need to know."

The broad aims of a MAPPA meeting are to review and establish agreement regarding the development and implementation of a Risk Management Plan including ensuring;

  • The analysis of the risk of serious harm has identified the risks.
  • That the identified risk management strategies and activities are implemented in line with professional role and competence.
  • That decisions are taken to address any obstacles to the delivery of the Risk Management Plan and uninterrupted service provision.
