Marac toolkit for racially minoritised services

A handy guide with template forms which explain how the Marac process works, how to attend and how to refer.

This practical toolkit has been created to support professionals working with services supporting refugees and racially minoritised victims and survivors, to:

  • understand how the Marac process works and the role their agency plays at the meeting
  • make effective referrals to Marac using the Dash risk identification checklist
  • prepare for attending a Marac meeting.

Having specialist knowledge and input at the Marac from services supporting refugees and racially minoritised survivors ensures that complexities and cultural issues that might apply in cases of intimate partner violence and extended family violence are more likely to be addressed through a robust and effective safety plan. If you do not have the resources to attend Marac regularly, you may wish to work with another agency such as the Idva to take your information to the meeting.

What’s included

  • Introduction
  • Frequently asked questions about Marac
  • Flowchart on the Marac process
  • Quick start guidance to the SafeLives Dash risk identification checklist, as well as the checklist itself
  • Marac referral form
  • Research form for Marac
  • Contact details form for Marac representatives

Without the Marac our survivor would have been taken abroad and possibly never seen again. It’s the difference that makes the difference.
