Multi-agency risk assessment conference (MARAC)

In the event that you are identified as being at high risk of domestic violence, you may be referred to a MARAC. If this happens, you should already know about it and have spoken with an agency worker. However, if you or your children are at very high risk, it is possibole that you may be referred without your agreement.  The aim of a MARAC is to get a clearer picture of the situation and make a plan to reduce further harm or risk. More information is available in this leaflet:
