Find the latest news and information about the Comprehensive Adults Using Violence Assessment Tool for Quarter 1 2022-23.

What is the Comprehensive Adult Using Family Violence Assessment Tool in TRAM?

Tools for Risk Assessment and Management (TRAM) is an online platform developed by FSV for use by agencies across the service system.

TRAM contains the adult and child victim survivor MARAM risk assessments and safety plan and a newly released Adult using Family Violence Comprehensive Risk Assessment Tool. The TRAM platform is used across The Orange Door network and by some community agencies.

The newly released Adult Using Family Violence Comprehensive Risk Assessment Tool will support specialist perpetrator services in their alignment to MARAM.

The tool provides a structure for the comprehensive assessment of family violence risk when working with perpetrators. It uses information sharing, direct assessment, self-reporting and structured analysis to support practitioners to determine the level of risk.

What has been achieved so far?

On Friday 30 September 2022, the MARAM Adult Using Family Violence Comprehensive Assessment Tool was released into TRAM. It can be used by any Specialist Perpetrator Intervention Service who is onboarded to TRAM.

On 8 November, FSV held an information session for specialist perpetrator practitioners and agencies to learn more about TRAM and the newly released tool.

What is happening now?

If any agency is interested to learn more about TRAM and the newly released tool, or would like to learn about accessing and using TRAM to support their practice and MARAM alignment, please contact tram@familysafety.vic.gov.au to find out more.

What is planned next?

The Adult Using Family Violence Risk Assessment Tool is in planning for release to The Orange Door practitioners in early 2023. The FSV team is also supporting interested agencies to onboard to TRAM, providing agency-based training and support.
