Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC)

Quickly exit this page

The Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) is a fortnightly meeting where statutory and voluntary agencies share information on high-risk cases of domestic abuse and create a plan to reduce risk to the victim and survivor and children, and hold perpetrators to account.

High-risk is defined as someone being at high risk of serious injury or death as a result of the abuse.

Any professional working with victims and survivors, children or perpetrators can refer to the MARAC. The perpetrator must not be informed of the referral as this can increase risk to the victim and survivor.

The MARAC operates remotely on MS Teams and takes place every two weeks.
