What is the TRAM?
Tools for Risk Assessment and Management (TRAM) has been developed by Family Safety Victoria as an online platform for use across the service system. TRAM contains the adult and child victim survivor MARAM risk assessments and safety plan. This platform is used across The Orange Door network and by some community agencies.
What is the Comprehensive Adult Using Family Violence Assessment Tool in TRAM?
The Adult Using Family Violence 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?
The MARAM Adult Using Family Violence Comprehensive Assessment Tool was released onto TRAM on Friday 30 September 2022 for use by Specialist Perpetrator Intervention Services.
What is happening now?
Since the last update, FSV has supported new services wanting to adopt the use of TRAM to support their risk assessment and management practice. FSV has run onboarding and training sessions with agency leaders and practitioners on how to use TRAM and the MARAM Adult Using Family Violence Comprehensive Assessment Tool.
FSV invites questions about TRAM and the new tool, what this will mean for funded agencies and The Orange Door, and how agencies can adopt TRAM. Please contact email@example.com to find out more.
What is planned next?
The Adult Using Family Violence Risk Assessment Tool is aimed for release to The Orange Door practitioners in mid-2023. FSV is currently working on the build of the Predominant Aggressor Identification tool into TRAM, which will be released for agency use by mid-2023.
