What is MARAM?
Since September 2018, a range of organisations have been designated ‘prescribed organisations’ under the Family Violence Multi-Agency Risk Assessment and Management Framework (MARAM). These ‘prescribed organisations’ are required by the Family Violence Protection Act 2008 to align their policies, practice guidance and tools to the MARAM Framework.
Community Housing organisations are considered ‘prescribed organisations. Participating in the MARAM training is one way of demonstrating an organisation’s commitment and adherence to the MARAM framework.
