Domestic abuse and MARAC referrals
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
- less than 14, but there are significant concerns in your professional judgement, a MARAC form is required, with your concerns identified
- 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.
