Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC)

The Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) brings together representatives from a number of different agencies who make a plan to increase the safety, health and wellbeing of people affected by domestic abuse and sexual violence.

Agencies that attend MARAC in Kingston include:

  • Kingston Police
  • Achieving for Children
  • Your Healthcare
  • Victim Support
  • Refuge-Kingston
  • Kingston Wellbeing Service
  • Community Mental Health Team
  • Kingston Housing
  • Kingston adult safeguarding
  • National probation Service
  • London Community Rehabilitation Company

The MARAC is a way of sharing information so that all agencies involved can get a clearer picture of situations referred to them and can better understand the needs of people experiencing domestic abuse.

Agencies at the MARAC then try and provide the right support, which may include:

  • making sure any agencies you approach are aware of your situation so they can support you better
  • getting you specialist domestic abuse advice and support
  • making your home more secure
  • assisting with housing issues
  • arranging joint meetings to coordinate any support you need
