FSV Seeks Input into MARAM Practice Guidance for Children and Young People

Family Safety Victoria (FSV) have commenced the development of MARAM practice guidance for:

  • Direct risk and wellbeing assessment of children and young people victim survivors
  • Identifying and responding to young people using family violence in the home and in intimate partner/dating relationships.

FSV has contracted a range of subject matter experts, including the Centre for Excellence in Child and Family Welfare and the Centre for Innovative Justice, RMIT. It is anticipated that further subject matter experts supporting the development of lived experience practice and Aboriginal children and young people will be engaged soon.

FSV is seeking additional nominations to support the development of these MARAM practice guidance across 2022-2023, including practitioners, team leaders, policy and research professionals across organisations working with children and young people, who are either experiencing or using family violence.
