MARAM maturity model

Find the latest news and information about the MARAM maturity model for Quarter 4 2022-23.

What is the MARAM maturity model?

The MARAM maturity model will be a key supporting resource of the MARAM Framework. The model provides a means for organisations to self-assess their level of alignment to MARAM and help them take improving steps. It will sit 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.

What has been achieved so far?

External human-centred design consultant Paper Giant has built on early material developed by FSV, to finalise research activities and co-designed maturity model resources in consultation with 8 Sector Champion organisations.

Three draft resources have now been produced as a result of these activities:

  • MARAM maturity model on a page

  • MARAM maturity model roadmap

  • Interactive self-assessment and action planner

What is happening now?

The maturity model project resources are being tested to assess the effectiveness before finalisation in 2024.

The testing will occur as part of a MARAM Alignment pilot partnership with the principal strategic advisors (PSA) from the Eastern Metropolitan Regional Family Violence Partnership and Primary Care Connect (auspice agency for Goulburn Integrated Family Violence Committee).

In September and October 2023, the PSA partnership will host workshops and communities of practice between implementation and executive leaders to build multi-agency collaboration to support organisations with their MARAM alignment and use of the model resources.

FSV’s internal project team is also progressing testing of the model resources by key sector and department stakeholders, including peak organisations and Aboriginal Community-Controlled Organisations as part of the Sector Grants initiative.
