Find the latest news and information about the Department of Families Fairness and Housing's MARAM implementation activities for Quarter 1 2023-24.

MARAM Intermediate workshops developed for Aboriginal Community Controlled Organisations

CFECFW in consultation with VACCHO, VACCA and VAHS developed a series of MARAM workshops designed to be delivered to ACCOs that are respectful and culturally safe. The sessions were delivered to 25 ACCOs in 2023. 100% of participants reported that they felt the sessions were conducted in a way that was culturally safe and that perspectives of themselves and others were acknowledged.

New suite of MARAMIS learning and development products

Safe and Equal in collaboration with the MARAMIS implementation team have commenced the development of three new Learning and Development products for delivery in 2024 aimed to increase DFFH policy and practice leaders’ understanding of the MARAMIS reforms.

The packages are:

  • Leading Alignment: for DFFH Executives and Managers to support them to understand their obligations in leading MARAMIS alignment at DFFH.

  • MARAM for Policy Makers: for DFFH workforce leads, policy and project staff to develop a deep understanding of how the MARAM principles, core knowledge and best practice risk assessment and management must be incorporated into their work.

  • Information Sharing Schemes (ISS) workshops: developed for DFFH internal staff to develop a deep understanding of the ISS to promote the wellbeing of children and young people under Child Information Sharing Scheme (CISS) and to assess or manage family violence risk under Family Violence Information Sharing Scheme (FVISS).
