Community MARAC

The Islington Community MARAC (Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference) is a multi-agency meeting where information is shared on vulnerable victims of anti-social behaviour (ASB).

The aim is to identify the highest risk, most complex cases and problem-solve the issues of concern. Victims also include those experiencing hate crime.

The main focus of the Community MARAC is on managing the risk to the vulnerable victim and / or perpetrator and providing options for increased safety. It also considers other persons affected and manages the behaviour of any perpetrator. The panel will decide on the best approach to managing the overall risk to the victim, perpetrator or community and on effective safety planning strategies.

What partners say about the Community MARAC

  • Agencies were all placed to discuss the case together - it was very well chaired and the preparation of information was efficient and helpful. There is a tone of cooperation and the different workers are really listened to and thoughtful responses are given. I found that other agencies took the issues in the case on board more after the referral to community MARAC.
  • It gave a more transparent understanding of what each service can do to resolve the issues and it aided communication and set targets to complete actions robustly
  • In such complex situations it's really important to know what can/cannot be done legally/ police and via social care, health etc

Who can be referred?

A victim/perpetrator should be referred by professionals if they are vulnerable or at risk to either themselves or others. The case may be complex or involve a multi-agency approach but will not fall under the responsibility of another panel. A referral form and risk assessment form are completed by professionals in the police, council or housing providers and are passed to the Community Safety Team. The referral may or may not be a repeat caller to the police and or council.

Referral forms for professionals are available by contacting the Community Risk Coordinator on the details below.

Who attends meetings?

Meetings are chaired by the Chief Inspector for Neighbourhood Policing (co-chaired by the council’s Community Safety Team) and held every month. They are well attended by 20 plus people with some officers only attending for specific cases. Core members include Police, Community Safety, Out-of-Hours ASB/Noise Team, Victim Support, Fire Brigade, Supporting People, Adult Social Care, Floating Support, Camden & Islington Foundation Trust (Mental Health Assessment & Advice Team), LBI & PFI Housing, and other registered housing providers.
