The Responsible Person in an organisation (or a member of staff, under their direction) should, as part of the safeguarding process, consider whether there is a need to make a referral to Potentially Dangerous Persons.
It may be the case, that an alleged perpetrator in the safeguarding process is also part of the MAPPA or Potentially Dangerous Persons system. If this is the case, it is imperative that the Responsible Person / staff member liaises with the MAPPA Coordinator in terms of sharing of information and to ensure the effective co-ordination of the two processes together.
The Responsible Person can contact the MAPPA Coordinator for any advice or information about Potentially Dangerous Persons referrals.
