Domestic abuse and MARAC referral

How to refer for support, including the completion of a risk indicator checklist.

Firstly, you must complete a Safe Lives DASH risk assessment attached to this page.

  • If the score is 14 or above, a MARAC referral is required.
  • If the score is less than 14, but there are significant concerns in your professional judgement, a MARAC form is required, with your concerns identified.
  • If the score is less than 14, complete the domestic abuse referral form.

Information on how to send these referrals is contained within the referral forms which are attached to this page.

The Multi-agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) and Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVA) information and referral process can be found in the staff guidance section.
