What is the MARAM alignment maturity model?
The MARAM alignment maturity model is intended to be one of the key supporting resources of the MARAM Framework, sitting alongside the MARAM Practice Guidance and Organisational Embedding Guide, which support organisations to understand what steps they should take to align with MARAM and provide guidance on risk assessment and management responsibilities.
The model will provide a means for organisations to assess their level of progress in taking these alignment steps.
What has been achieved so far?
Nine sector champions have been appointed:
- Aldercourt Primary School
- Bendigo Health
- Bethany Community Services
- Early Childhood Australia
- Safe Steps
- Victorian Aboriginal Health Service
- the Youth Support and Advocacy Service.
The sector champions have undertaken an initial testing of a self-audit prototype and maturity matrix through 1-on-1 sessions. Results from these sessions is being collated into a revised prototype for testing.
What is planned next?
The sector champions will be engaged to undertake further testing of prototypes and provide feedback to FSV. FSV will conduct wider consultation on prototypes once they have been further progressed, with both government and sector representative groups.
