The MARAC Navigators will receive all referrals from the MARAC meetings, working with a small caseload of typically 10 cases. Each MARAC Navigator will aim to:
A Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) is a weekly meeting where information is shared on the highest risk domestic abuse cases between representatives of local police, health, child protection, housing practitioners, Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs), probation and other specialists from the statutory and voluntary sectors.
At the heart of a MARAC is the working assumption that no single agency or individual can see the complete picture of the life of a victim or perpetrator and any children, but all may have insights that are crucial to their safety. After sharing all relevant information they have about a victim, any children and the perpetrator, the representatives discuss options for increasing safety and turn these into a co-ordinated action plan.
