The role of MARAC (Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference) in high-risk cases

When someone is experiencing domestic abuse, it’s vital to make an accurate and fast assessment of the danger they’re in, so they can get the right help as quickly as possible. This 1-hour webinar, brought to you by SafeLives, will explore the role of the MARAC and multi-agency working with the highest risk domestic abuse cases between representatives of local police, health, child protection, housing practitioners, Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs), probation and other specialists from the statutory and voluntary sectors. The primary focus of the MARAC is to safeguard the adult victim – this session will discuss how MARAC makes links with other fora to safeguard children and manage the behaviour of the perpetrator. At the heart of a MARAC is the working assumption that no single agency or individual can see the complete picture of the life of a victim, but all may have insights that are crucial to their safety. We will discuss the four aims and core principles, share learnings from our national data, research and feedback – how the process works, how risks are identified, the ways your organisation can contribute, and make referrals.
