Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC)

The Lambeth domestic violence Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) is a meeting where professionals share information on high-risk cases of domestic abuse and put in place a risk management plan.

The aim of Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) meetings is to address the safety of the victim/survivor, children and agency staff and to review and coordinate service provision in high-risk domestic abuse cases.

Coronavirus update

MARAC is operating remotely during isolation and the conference is now every two weeks. Email for more information or to make a referral on: lambethmarac@lambeth.gov.uk.

Making a referral

Any professional working with a victim/survivor or their family can refer to the MARAC using the referral form via their agency’s MARAC representative. Professionals working with perpetrators of domestic abuse can also make a MARAC referral for the victim/survivor. However, the perpetrator should not be informed of the referral.

MARAC referrals can be made at any time, however, as MARACs are two-weekly, there will be a wait between referral and the case being heard at the MARAC. All risk management and safeguarding work should therefore be done immediately, alongside the MARAC referral, and should not wait until the MARAC meeting.

If you require any information about the MARAC, want to know who your agency’s representative is, or help to make a referral, please contact the Violence Against Women and Girls Project Officer on: lambethmarac@lambeth.gov.uk.
