Multi-agency risk assessment conference (MARAC)

A locally held meeting where statutory and voluntary agency representatives share information about people at high risk of domestic abuse. Any agency can refer an adult or child they believe to be at high risk of harm. The aim of the meeting is to produce a co-ordinated action plan to increase an adult or child’s safety, health and well-being. Agencies that attend vary, but are likely to include the police, probation, health and housing services.
