MARAC Navigator - The Bridge Project
Following the successful 12 month test and learn project we are delighted to have received additional funding to continue the service. The MARAC Navigator Service focus on a selected group of cases that return to the MARAC due to repeated high-risk domestic abuse incidents where engagement with either the victim or perpetrator in the coordinated action plan has been unsuccessful. The MARAC Navigators will receive all referrals from the MARAC meetings, working with a small caseload of typically 10 cases each MARAC Navigator will aim to:
- Provide aspirational person-centred support through building a trusting relationship with the victim or perpetrator to start to address issues that contribute to incidents of abuse
- Pro-activity and intensively conduct face to face work with the victim or perpetrator to build all the networks of support that wrap around the individual to facilitate recovery, building and sustaining hope
- Work as part of a wider team to build and evidence what future support should look like.
A Multi-Agency Risk Assessment Conference (MARAC) is a weekly meeting where information is shared on the highest risk domestic abuse cases between representatives of local police, health, child protection, housing practitioners, Independent Domestic Violence Advisors (IDVAs), probation and other specialists from the statutory and voluntary sectors. At the heart of a MARAC is the working assumption that no single agency or individual can see the complete picture of the life of a victim or perpetrator and any children, but all may have insights that are crucial to their safety. After sharing all relevant information, they have about a victim, any children and the perpetrator, the representatives discuss options for increasing safety and turn these into a coordinated action plan.
