Future Business Plan 2022/2023


The multi-agency members of the Lanarkshire Management Operational Group (MOG) and Strategic Oversight Group (SOG) worked collaboratively to produce the following business plan to address the key issues for the period 2022/2023.

Lanarkshire MAPPA remains committed to ensuring that best practice and innovation remain at the forefront of managing offenders. This commitment remains unaltered by the exceptional challenges presented by the COVID-19 situation. All agencies have agreed to work together in partnership, to manage offenders and jointly address issues of risk.  With the core feature to protect the public through effective work with offenders, the shared aim is to help change offending behaviour and mitigate the risk of re-offending.
