Multi-Agency Public Protection Arrangements (MAPPA) are separate, distinct frameworks in England and Wales, Scotland and Northern Ireland. However, practitioners from Scotland and Northern Ireland are invited to attend MAPPA Improvement Group meetings in England and Wales and may join the MAPPA website (a secure online tool to facilitate policy announcements, consultation and communication between MAPPA practitioners). The Police National Lead for MAPPA in England and Wales visited colleagues in Scotland in May 2017 and Northern Ireland in October 2018.
