    The MARAC process allows agencies to share information about very high risk cases of domestic abuse and together agree a Risk Management Plan (RMP). Whatever service/organisation you work in, you will be in contact with victims of domestic abuse. Victims need frontline staff to have an excellent understanding of risk in relation to domestic abuse. Through the sharing of information and expertise, the MARAC process enhances the safety of the individuals at highest risk of further abuse.

    This seminar will provide key information about the MARAC process including information on:

    • Talking about domestic abuse with victims;
    • Risk Assessment and safety planning;
    • Making a referral to the MARAC process;
    • Information sharing and the MARAC meeting;
    • MARAC Risk Management Plans.

    Participants will:

    • Develop a robust understanding of the dynamics of domestic abuse;
    • Understand the impact of domestic abuse on the lives of victims, including children;
    • Have an increased awareness of risks associated with very high risk cases of domestic abuse and the value of a robust risk assessment tool;
    • Understand how the MARAC process can enhance the protection of victims including children living with domestic abuse;
    • Understand the MARAC process in Fife and the practitioner's role within it.
