Aims

The primary objective of holding a a MARAC is to reduce the risk of serious harm or homicide for a victim and increase the health, safety and wellbeing of victims, both adults and children.

How is this achieved?

At a MARAC, information about the risks faced by the victims is collated from a number of different agencies. Actions needed to ensure safety and resources are available locally are shared and used to create a risk management plan involving all relevant agencies.

By providing a coordinated effort from all agencies and organisations, a MARAC serves to ensure that high risk victims, adults and children, are listened to, supported and better protected from further abuse or repeat victimisation.
