Domestic Violence Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC)

The MARAC is a monthly risk management meeting where professionals share information on high risk cases of domestic violence and abuse and put in place a risk management plan.

The MARAC provides a forum for sharing information and drawing up an action plan in order to reduce future harm to high risk survivors and their children.

The SASS or another identified agency will represent the interests of the survivor and take any suggested action back to the survivor for her/his consideration.

In Islington the MARAC Coordinator is Anthea Ranjit-Singh. To contact Anthea about the MARAC or to make a referral, email marac@islington.gov.uk or call 020 7527 2175. You can also use the secure email address: marac@islington.gov.uk.cjsm.net

The Safelives website has downloadable toolkits with information and guidance on referring to and participating in MARAC.

Referral to MARAC

All professionals from across the statutory and voluntary sector may refer cases to the MARAC. All documentation relating to the victim should be protectively marked. A common referral form is used among all agencies.

Completed referral forms are sent to the MARAC Coordinator, the IDVA services and Children’s Social Care by MODUs or secure email. If you do not have a CJSM email a completed referral form should be sent to the MARAC co-ordinator via secure email or be password protected. The deadline for referrals is 9 days prior to the MARAC meeting.

A flow chart explaining the MARAC referral process can be downloaded below. Also below you can download the Domestic Abuse, Stalking and Honour Based Violence Risk Assessment Checklist (DASH RIC).
