Information for agencies working with people at risk from Domestic Abuse
MARAC (Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference) provides a consistent approach to support victims of domestic abuse who are identified as at risk of serious harm. It puts in place various plans and actions in relation to the safety and well being of the identified person, and if appropriate, their children. The MARAC Process does not override pre-existing procedures within organisations where issues of Child Protection are concerned.
If you require general information on Domestic Abuse and the services provided within County Durham please visit the Domestic Abuse pages of Durham County Council.
We also work with the Safe Durham Partnership who lead on Domestic Abuse and we have links to the County Durham Domestic Abuse and Sexual Violence Executive Group (DASVEG). We continue to promote the need for domestic abuse services to support children, young people and their families.
