MARAC and DASH
Sheffield Multiagency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC)
The overarching aim of the MARAC is to protect victims of domestic abuse and their children and reduce serious harm and homicide as a result of domestic abuse. It also improves effectiveness by enabling agencies to work together, improves accountability through the action planning, and provides support for staff working with high risk domestic abuse cases.
The Sheffield MARAC brings agencies together three times a month to consider cases of domestic abuse where the victim has been assessed as at high risk of serious harm, with the aim of reducing that risk, and promoting safety.
