New videos explain the family violence risk assessment framework (MARAM)

06/07/20 4.32am

A new Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Management Framework (MARAM) video, produced by Family Safety Victoria, tells the story of how we are working together to manage and assess family violence risk and improve the lives of future generations of Victorians.   

Under MARAM, it is a core principle that children and young people are recognised as victim survivors in their own right, to ensure their voices are heard. Family violence risk assessments for children and young people consider a range of unique risks, because every child and young person will experience family violence differently.   

By putting children and young people at the centre, professionals obtain a clear picture of the children they work with and can provide them with support early to assist them to recover from violence.   

Find out more about how the Child Information Sharing Scheme enables authorised organisations to promote a child’s wellbeing or safety on the Information Sharing Scheme and MARAM Reform website.

Family Safety Victoria has also produced a new video to guide practitioners through the MARAM practice notes released specifically to support targeted responses to family violence, including sexual assault, during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.
