You will be responsible for ensuring that safeguarding and risk issues are identified and effectively managed through the Multi Agency Risk Assessment Conferences (MARAC) in Wandsworth, and work alongside the exiting MARAC Coordinator. This panel brings together multiple agencies to identify risk and works to protect the victims of the most serious domestic violence and abuse.

About the role

You will administer MARAC panel by receiving referrals and risk assessments, setting the agenda, completing minutes and actions, and ensuring that partner agencies complete their actions.

This will include preparing performance reports on the MARAC for partnership meetings. As the MARAC expert, you will develop and deliver training sessions to partner agencies to raise awareness of the MARAC process and violence against women and girls.
