The Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) is an initiative designed to bring agencies together to discuss the safety and well-being of people that are at high risk of further serious harm or death.
If you are experiencing abuse from a partner, ex-partner or family abuse this is domestic abuse and help is available for you.
Many of these questions relate to partners but domestic abuse also happens between family members and ex-partners.
Domestic abuse is when a person hurts, controls, threatens or bullies another person who is or was their partner or who is a member of their family. The abuse doesn’t always end when the relationship ends. As a young person you might see or hear abuse in your household, you might be hurt either physically or emotionally as part of the abuse between adults, and you might experience abuse from your own boyfriend or girlfriend or other family member.
You may know a sister, brother, mum, dad, son or daughter, colleague, neighbour, cousin or friend who is experiencing abuse behind closed doors.
