Multiagency Violence & Exploitation (MAVE) Panel Referrals
Lambeth's Multiagency Violence & Exploitation Panel aims to add value to our efforts to safeguard children and young adults (up to age 25) from exploitation and serious violence. The panel meets fortnightly to:

Agree multiagency action to mitigate risks to a group or cohort of children or young adults who are experiencing, or at risk of, exploitation and serious violence
Agree activity to disrupt identified adult perpetrators of exploitation or violence
Develop multi-agency activity to safeguard locations where children or young adults are at risk of, or experiencing, exploitation or serious violence
