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: 

  • Help unlock progress on an individual's protection or safety plan where professionals need to escalate any blockages or issues that haven't been resolved through strategy and professionals' meetings 

  • 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
