Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC)

Leave this page (external link)

The Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) is a multi-agency approach to reducing the risk of serious harm or homicide, faced by high risk victims of domestic violence.

A MARAC takes place every three weeks and involves partner agencies sharing information on the highest risk cases of domestic violence and creating a coordinated action plan to reduce the risk to the victims/survivors and their families. Referrals are made using the Domestic Abuse Stalking Harassment and Honour Based Violence Risk Identification Checklist (DASH RIC). This checklist helps referring agencies determine the level of risk, but it can also be based on professional judgment (if a professional believes the victims/survivor to be at high risk of serious harm or homicide).

The checklist builds on the most commonly used risk assessment tools but has a wider scope which includes family violence, stalking and honour based violence.

The Haringey MARAC is coordinated by Standing Together Against Domestic Violence STADV (external link). Please visit their website for more information on the MARAC, how to refer, and to access the MARAC referral form. Alternatively you can call the MARAC Team at STADV on 020 8748 5717.

There are also some useful resources and toolkits designed to help various agencies who sit on MARAC. To find out more visit the Safer Lives website (external link).
