Guidance for safeguarding children’s boards linking with Marac

This template aims to help safeguarding children’s partnerships to link effectively with the Marac process

This guidance aims to help safeguarding children partnerships to coordinate their work with the Marac process and collate appropriate evidence to know how they are improving specific outcomes for the children and young people who have been identified.

It aims to assist partnerships to coordinate the work of all partners in safeguarding children locally and monitor and challenge the effectiveness of Marc where necessary and appropriate to do so. It outlines the outcomes that partnerships should strive for to ensure the effective safeguarding of children and young people identified through Marac.

Please note: this guidance was created in 2016 and therefore refers to LSCBs throughout. The guidance content remains relevant.
