Statistics and Reports
MARAC (Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference) resources
Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conferences (MARACs) are meetings where information about high risk domestic abuse victims (those at risk of murder or serious harm) is shared between local agencies. By bringing all agencies together at a MARAC, a risk focused, coordinated safety plan can be drawn up to support the victim. Over 260 MARACs are operating across England, Wales and Northern Ireland managing over 55,000 cases a year.
Twice monthly MARAC meetings are held in Bristol and include representatives from most statutory and some voluntary agencies.
The MARAC process is assessed and developed by a national charity called CAADA , Coordinated Action Against Domestic Abuse. For more information about MARAC and for guidance and documents visit the CAADA website.
For specific information about MARAC in Bristol contact the MARAC coordinator Michelle Cunningham, Bristol Safeguarding Coordination Unit.
