In response to more agencies working remotely, we at STADV have developed a plan we hope will continue to facilitate effective communication and partnership working between agencies, whilst recognising additional time, and environmental constraints.

Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conferences are meetings where information is shared on the highest risk domestic abuse cases to ensure that all parties put in place a plan for safety. MARACs are known to reduce serious harm to those most at risk of domestic violence. This role will include elements of deputising for the MARAC coordinator, who works in the London boroughs.
